We report an observation of a partially erupting prominence and its associated dynamical plasma processes based on observations recorded by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) on board the Solar Dynamics Observatory. The prominence first went through a slow rise (SR) phase followed by a fast rise (FR) phase. The SR phase began after a couple of small brightenings were seen toward the footpoints. When the prominence had transitioned from SR to FR, it had already become kinked. The prominence…

A Hot Flux Rope Observed by SDO/AIA
A filament eruption was observed on October 31, 2010 in the images recorded by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) on board the Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO) in its Extreme Ultra-Violet (EUV)
Witnessing Tether-cutting Reconnection at the Onset of a Partial Eruption
In this paper, we study the onset process of a solar eruption on 21 February 2015, focusing on its unambiguous precursor phase. With multi-wavelength imaging observations from the Atmospheric Imaging
The solar corona, the outermost part of the sun’s atmosphere, is a highly dynamic region prone to eruptive instabilities many of which are driven by magnetic reconnection. Coronal Mass Ejections
Direct Evidence of an Eruptive, Filament-Hosting Magnetic Flux Rope Leading to a Fast Solar Coronal Mass Ejection
Magnetic flux ropes (MFRs) are believed to be at the heart of solar coronal mass ejections (CMEs). A well-known example is the prominence cavity in the low corona that sometimes makes up a three-part
Prominence and Filament Eruptions Observed by the Solar Dynamics Observatory: Statistical Properties, Kinematics, and Online Catalog
We present a statistical study of prominence and filament eruptions observed by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) onboard the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). Several properties are recorded
Multiwavelength observations of a partially eruptive filament on 2011 September 8
In this paper, we report our multiwavelength observations of a partial filament eruption event in NOAA active region 11283 on 2011 September 8. A magnetic null point and the corresponding spine and
When do solar erupting hot magnetic flux ropes form?
Aims. We investigate the formation times of eruptive magnetic flux ropes relative to the onset of solar eruptions, which is important for constraining models of coronal mass ejection (CME)
Heating of an erupting prominence associated with a solar coronal mass ejection on 2012 January 27
We investigate the heating of an erupting prominence and loops associated with a coronal mass ejection and X-class flare. The prominence is seen in absorption in EUV at the beginning of its eruption.
Unambiguous Evidence of Filament Splitting-Induced Partial Eruptions
Coronal mass ejections are often considered to result from the full eruption of a magnetic flux rope (MFR). However, it is recognized that, in some events, the MFR may release only part of its flux,
Temperature evolution of magnetic flux rope in a failed solar eruption
In this presentation, we report for the first time the detailed temperature evolution process of the magnetic flux rope in a failed solar eruption. Occurred on January 05, 2013, the flux rope was


Observation of a bright coronal downflow by SOHO/EIT
A distinct coronal downflow has been discovered in the course of a prominence eruption associated coronal mass ejection (CME) imaged by EIT (Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope) and LASCO (Large
The early phases of a solar prominence eruption and associated flare: a multi-wavelength analysis
Aims. We aim to examine the precursor phases and early evolution of a prominence eruption associated with a M4-class flare and a partial halo coronal mass ejection (CME) observed on 2005 July 27. Our
Observations of the Failed Eruption of a Filament
We have observed the fine temporal and spatial structure of a filament eruption on 2002 May 27 following an M2-class flare. Our observations at Big Bear Solar Observatory were made at the wavelength
Observing Flux Rope Formation During the Impulsive Phase of a Solar Eruption
Magnetic flux ropes are believed to be an important structural component of coronal mass ejections (CMEs). While there exists much observational evidence of flux ropes after the eruption, e.g., as
We present observations of hot plasma from solar eruptions recorded by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) on the Solar Dynamics Observatory. AIA is the first narrowband instrument capable of
A bright coronal downflow seen in multi-wavelength observations: evidence of a bifurcating flux-rope?
Aims. We study the origin and characteristics of a bright coronal downflow seen after a coronal mass ejection associated with erupting prominences on 5 March 2000. Methods. This study extends that of
X-ray precursors to flares and filament eruptions
Aims. To study preflare X-ray brightenings as diagnostics of the destabilisation of flare-associated erupting filaments/prominences. Methods. We combine new observations from the Transition Region
Kink-induced Catastrophe in a Coronal Eruption
We investigate the kinking motion and its role in the eruption of a filament/cavity system that occurred on 2002 October 31. The evolution of the eruptive filament consists of four distinct phases.
