Another spectacular Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) took off from the Sun in the early hours of January 4, starting off
as a filament eruption seen by the Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT) in the 195 E images. The complexity and
structure of the CME as it passed through the Large Angle and Spectrometric Coronagraph (LASCO) C2 and C3 fields of
view amazed even experienced solar physicists at the SOHO operations center.
