    In terms of damage (if any) - What can a Hyder Flare cause?

    Hyde flares may, sometimes, be associated with high energy particle emission, this particles could be harm for orbiting satellites and damage them. This is a problem for companies with satellites.

    So in other words, they just act like your typical CME?? Take out a few satellites etc?

    we will see in a few days, keep in mind from our own perspective of observation we can hardly detect CMEs directly pointed at Earth as clearly as those which go sideways.

    Well there is nothing on Spaceweather or any other news website, which I was expecting as they were discussing the filament only a few days ago. Maybe it wasn't the filament & just a normal CME?
