Best viewed in Full Screen HD: A huge filament above the Sun erupted in an amazing display as seen in this video by the Solar Dynamics Observatory at approximately 1535 UTC (Dec 6, 2010). The eruption is in the lower left region of the solar disc.
The location of the eruption and the magnetic field configuration at the place of the event suggest the impact on the Earth will be limited.
