Imaging solar coronal condensation forming prominences was difficult in the past, a situation recently changed by Hinode and SDO. We present the first example observed with SDO/AIA, in which material gradually cools through multiple EUV channels in a transequatorial loop system that confines an earlier eruption. Nine hours later, this leads to eventual condensation at the dips of these loops, forming a moderate-size prominence of ∼10 g, to be compared to the characteristic 10 g mass of a CME…

HST Resolves Stars in a Tiny Body Falling on the Dwarf Galaxy DDO 68
We present new Hubble Space Telescope (HST) imaging of a stream-like system associated with the dwarf galaxy DDO 68, located in the Lynx-Cancer Void at a distance of D$\sim$12.65 Mpc from us. The
Simulations of solar filament fine structures and their counterstreaming flows
Solar filaments, also called solar prominences when appearing above the solar limb, are cold, dense materials suspended in the hot tenuous solar corona, consisting of numerous long, fibril-like
Star Formation Histories of the LEGUS Dwarf Galaxies. III. The Nonbursty Nature of 23 Star-forming Dwarf Galaxies
We derive the recent star formation histories of 23 active dwarf galaxies using HST observations from the Legacy Extragalactic UV Survey (LEGUS). We apply a color-magnitude diagram fitting technique
Detecting Thin Stellar Streams in External Galaxies: Resolved Stars and Integrated Light
The morphology of thin stellar streams can be used to test the nature of dark matter. It is therefore crucial to extend searches for globular cluster streams to other galaxies than the Milky Way. In
