AR11165's Departing Crown

AR11165-Departing-Crown, originally uploaded by Mark Townley.

Looking like the crown produced when a stone is dropped into a pond, AR11165 spits and splutters out plasma as it passes over the limb. This has been a fascinating active region to watch over the past several days - lots going on! Today was possibly the icing on the cake! As a bonus a small filaprom snakes slowly over the limb beneath it. Taken with the usual setup - DS40 @ f19 DMK31.
