This anomaly seems to consist of a spherical shape attached to the sun by a magnetic filament vortex. Note a similar, smaller anomaly to the upper left of the obvious one. Note also that the filament vortex appears to pull away with the spherical shape, and sets off a cascade reaction in "feeding" filaments. A Coronal Mass Ejection was associated with the separation of this filament vortex and spherical shape. Movie generated using JHelioviewer using data from SDO AIA 171A.
