A limb CME on 2011/03/11

A CME occurred at the SW limb when Hinode is pointing at the south pole to support HOP 101. XRT decided to run a CME watch program (4x4 binned, large field of view, and 10 min cadence) due to multi bright active regions on the disk. This CME is observed by XRT with two filters (C-poly and Thin-Be). Bright material started to erupt outwards around 19:42 UT on March 11. After the eruption, long and extended material is observed at the top of the post flare loops.

Keywords: CME, Limb
Filters: C_poly
