[PEM18-P01] "Dandelion" Filament Eruption and Coronal Waves Associated with a Solar Flare on 2011 February 16
Keywords:Sun: chromosphere, Sun: corona, Sun: filament
We observed a filament eruption, whose shape is like a "dandelion", associated with the M1.6 flare that occurred on 2011 February 16 in Hα images taken by the Flare Monitoring Telescope at Ica University, Peru. We derive the three-dimensional velocity field of the erupting filament.
We also identify winking filaments that are located far from the flare site in Hα images, whereas no Moreton wave is observed. By comparing the temporal evolution of the winking filaments with those of the coronal wave seen in the extreme ultraviolet images data taken by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly on board the Solar Dynamics Observatory and by the Extreme Ultraviolet Imager on board the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory-Ahead, we confirm that the winking filaments were activated by the EUV coronal wave.
