Solar Activity as seen by PROBA2; 19th and 20th of October

October 19th

On October 19th, a rather spectacular prominence eruption occurred on the south limb (see images below).


Also, quite some activity can be observed from an active region approaching (but behind) the east limb.
These events can be seen unfolding here (SWAP/AIA movie - HelioViewer) and here (SWAP difference movie).

October 20th

On October 20th, the aforementioned active region approached the east limb, thereby better disclosing the intensity of its activity. Even though the AR did not yet round the east limb, it displayed M9.0 flare activity during the evening (see pictures below).



Movies of this event can be seen here (SWAP/AIA movie) and here (SWAP difference movie).
