Description:

On August 6th, a small filament on the sun nearly doubled in length and began gyrating and writhing madly around. We all watched and awaited it's dramatic end. Instead of a huge explosion, it suddenly just began to dissipate, much to our chagrin. Maybe the next one will give us a good show, eh?
