  A halo or partial-halo CME was detected with the following
characteristics:

            t0      | dt0| pa | da |  v  |  dv | minv| maxv|
2017-09-17T12:00:08.790 | 2 | 65 | 152 | 1249 | 48 | 1135 | 1249 


      t0: onset time, earliest indication of liftoff
     dt0: duration of liftoff (hours)
      pa: principal angle, counterclockwise from North (degrees)
      da: angular width of the CME (degrees),
       v: median velocity (km/s)
      dv: variation (1 sigma) of velocity over the width of the CME
   mindv: lowest velocity detected within the CME
   maxdv: highest velocity detected within the CME
