Well, it has been a fairly quiet couple of weeks since all the activity at the beginning of the month. Early in the morning of 28 August 2011, a small filament erupted with an associated B-class solar flare. Here is the event as observed by SDO/AIA in three wavelengths (171,193 and 211 Angstrom) along with SOHO/LASCO C2/C3 and the STEREO spacecraft. The event was on the northeast disk or upper right side of the Sun. It was a cool event but small and not Earth-directed. Enjoy!
