Filament channel on the limb
Arcade loop systems were observed above the filament cavity. The first and second figures show Al/poly and thin-Be images taken by Hinode XRT. Top two images in each figure show averaged images during the first half and the latter half of the observation time. The bottom two show unsharpmasked images. The inner arcade looks a bit brighter than the outter in thin-Be images, vice versa in Al/poly images. The third figure shows the filament above the limb taken by SOT-FG
