I was interested in the sickle shaped filament on the NE quadrant of the solar disc. It pointed to another arcing filament with a delta shaped origin. This huge filament was bursting over the suns limb transposing into a waltzing prominence of many Earth lenghts against the blackness of space.

Active Region 1057 seemed to have a small bright flare which appeared to be cupped by a C shaped filament. Between 1057 and the waltzing prom another large filament heaved itself toward the solar corona.
