Wow!

Nice of the prominence to happen in the corner where there's some extra room in the FOV.

Good catch! Thanks for the heads up on that, I was at work so would have missed it if you hadn't let us know.

Is there a proper name for the cool secondary explosions when plasma falls back on the photosphere?

I dont know... I don't think i've ever seen anything like that before, maybe its just SDO is the first to be able to observe such explosions.

Those cold gas filaments falling back and flashing up as they "impact" have got to be one of the coolest things about the Sun I've ever seen. It's like throwing sticks of wood into a lava pool. The initial shockwave was also cool.

The shockwave in the AIA 211 images is probably the most impressive it looks like an expanding bubble.

I think the STEREO AHEAD probe will have had a great view of this prominence.

Just beyond freaking amazing. ohmy.gif To witness such titanic phenomena is a stunning experience.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
