The huge filament eruption of August 31st 2012

A magnificent filament eruption occurred on Friday 31st around 19:40 (see picture below; movies of the whole eruption can be found here). The erupting filament can be seen traveling in the South-East direction. At the time of this image, the erupting filament is extending out of the SDO/AIA field of view.

Jan Janssens, a member of SIDC, generated an explicative movie here.
