We are witnessing a physical process, some kind of explosion, profoundly different in nature from the activation of a quiescent prominence which leads to a disparition brusque. 6. Loops AND CORONAL RAIN Some of the most beautiful examples of gracious motion of material in the corona are provided by loop prominences and coronal rain, types A in the Menzel-Evans classification.

Zeeman components of a simple Zeeman triplet. line-of-sight is perpendicular to the magnetic field, y=90°, the transverse case, the n-component is twice as strong as a a-component, and is linearly polarized, parallel to the magnetic field in emission Zeeman effect, and perpendicular to the field in the inverse Zeeman effect.
