The interiors of quiescent prominences are filled with turbulent flows. The evolution of upflow plumes, descending pillars, and vortex motions has been clearly detected in high-resolution observations. The Rayleigh–Taylor instability is thought to be a driver of such internal flows. Descending pillars are related to the mass budgets of prominences. There is a hypothesis of dynamic equilibrium where the mass drainage via descending pillars and the mass supply via radiative condensation are… 
Modeling the Effect of Mass-draining on Prominence Eruptions
Quiescent solar prominences are observed within the solar atmosphere for up to several solar rotations. Their eruption is commonly preceded by a slow increase in height that can last from hours to
Prominence Formation by Levitation-Condensation at Extreme Resolutions
<div> <div> <div> <p>We revisit the so-called levitation-condensation mechanism for the ab-inito formation of solar prominences: cool and dense clouds in the million-degree solar atmosphere.
Observation of bi-directional jets in a prominence
Quiescent prominences host a large range of flows, many driven by buoyancy, which lead to velocity shear. The presence of these shear flows could bend and stretch the magnetic field resulting in the
Dynamics of Descending Knots in a Solar Prominence and Their Possible Contributions to the Heating of the Local Corona
The knots in solar prominences are often observed to fall with nearly constant velocity, but the associated physical mechanism is currently not well understood. In this Letter, we present a
Decoding the Pre-Eruptive Magnetic Field Configurations of Coronal Mass Ejections
A clear understanding of the nature of the pre-eruptive magnetic field configurations of Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) is required for understanding and eventually predicting solar eruptions. Only
Filament Eruption and Its Reformation Caused by Emerging Magnetic Flux
We present observations of the eruption and then reformation of a filament caused by its nearby emerging magnetic flux. Driven by the emerging magnetic flux, the emerging positive fluxes moved toward

The existence of solar prominences—cool, dense, filamented plasma suspended in the corona above magnetic neutral lines—has long been an outstanding problem in solar physics. In earlier numerical

We present numerical simulations in 2.5D settings where large-scale prominences form in situ out of coronal condensation in magnetic dips, in close agreement with early as well as recent reporting of

The Origin of High-Speed Motions and Threads in Prominences
Prominences are among the most spectacular manifestations of both quiescent and eruptive solar activity, yet the origins of their magnetic-field and plasma structures remain poorly understood. We

Modern observations revealed rich dynamics within solar prominences. The globally stable quiescent prominences, characterized by the presence of thin vertical threads and falling knobs, are

We propose a reconnection–condensation model in which topological change in a coronal magnetic field via reconnection triggers radiative condensation, thereby resulting in prominence formation.
