Huge filament eruption in the evening of Thursday 26th of July

A solar prominence/filament, 'sitting' on the North-East limb, erupted on Thu 24th, around 20:45.


Some pictures of this eruption are shown below:
1. Eruption in progress

A movie, showing the complete eruption can be found here. The movie was generated with HelioViewer, using (colored) SWAP (171) images.

Right after the end of this eruption, another filament eruption occurred on the opposite side - North-West limb, starting after midnight on 27th.
