Looking Along a Filament

SDO peered down the length of a long solar filament as it rotated over the Sun's edge June 3 (at 3:00 UT) to June 4, 2013 (at 17:00 UT). The filament's darker, cooler plasma of appeared to have a number of support struts below it as it snaked its way above the surface. In the background bright coils of magnetic field lines rose up above an active region. Images were taken in extreme ultraviolet light. Credit: Solar Dynamics Observatory.
