Soft X-ray Jet of 7 Dec. 1991 The four panels here show a jet starting from a flaring bright point at the bottom of the images (the square extensions upward are artifacts of CCD saturation resulting from the brightness of the flare). The jet arcs through the corona and impacts the surface, near the pole (the N limb of the Sun can barely be seen in this representation), some 12 minutes later. The motion is well-collimated and at a speed of about 1000 km/s. This remarkable event is best seen in movie representation. For details, see the paper by Strong et al. (PASJ 44, L161).
