While Hinode was pointed at a prominence on the south west limb, XRT utilized it's full field of view to capture the dynamics of
the extended solar atmosphere around the prominence while monitoring the sun for flares. During this time, XRT observed a small, compact flare, that included
an eruption of hot plasma.
The event started around 9UT, just west of AR12339. A small area brightens and then a stream of
10 million degree plasma squirts out of the brightening. This jet of plasma quickly disperses high in the corona, perhaps heating it.
