Outbreak in AR1302

Posted by Tom Moran at 16:26 on 2011 Sep 28

What looked like a very bright outbreak (flare?) observed at 12.21 UT September 28 2011 in active region 1302. I have attached a GIF animation to illustrate. The region was imaged at 11.17 and I have included this at the start of the animation as comparison, ie it did'nt suddenly flare up from nothing, I think I must have caught it near its downward cycle. The flare timescale is 12.31 to 12.50.Tom Moran
