Color- 195Å (a mixture of Fe XII at 1.5 million degrees and Fe XXIV at some 10 million degrees) show some remarkable features. Between 00:50 and 01:05UT there is a flare, a faint brightening that expands upwards, and a hazy, striated, rapidly-evolving pattern of emission visible above the active region. Then, dark blobs move downward into the bright haze, as dark, cool material sinking through a hot, tenuous material underneath, with some sign of vortices. Then, bright flare ribbons leave a bright trail of ``prairie fire'', and arcades of cooling loops form, with dark, cooled material draining back towards the solar surface.
