On June 7, 2011, an M-2 flare occurred on the Sun which released a very large coronal mass ejection (CME). At this wavelength, very little of the ejected material is visible. However, it is possible to see locations where some of the material is falling back and striking the solar surface.
This image sequence is captured at one minute intervals and designed to play synchronously with animations 3839 (171 Ångstroms), 3840 (211 Ångstroms) and 3838 (304 Ångstroms).
