..and the filament continues...

Harald contributed a new filament image mosaic below:

Hi  enclosed the link of the long filament from 3.8.2012. The conditions it was very poor, I could not focus the picture precisely.  http://www.unigraph.de/images/Sonne2012/ch20120803_0008-11-42-59_65p.jpg cs Harald

Michael Buxton managed to get some cool video of this amazing filament:

 hi all  had aprox 1 hour of clear skies, just enogh time to make this movie of the giant filament   twisted flux tubes gone wild! captured at 1 minute intervals from 1635-1724. bummer the clouds rolled back in.this filament may be part active, part quiescent. looks like the end in the AR is stable, while the other side dances. perhaps the strong mag field over the AR is keeping the one end stable

Raymond posted a full disc illustrating the scale of this filament:

 Look at the size of this filament. Has anyone seen one longer? Check it out:http://raylalonde.blogspot.ca/ Enjoy. Have a sunny clear day !
