The movie above shows XRT observations in the Ti-poly filter starting from 2011 September 21, while supporting the polar helioseismology observations of HOP101. Due to multiple active regions on the disk, XRT took large field-of-view (2048x1024 and 2x2 binned) and low-cadence (2 or 5 minute) observations. Thanks to the large FOV capability, XRT observed two eruptions that occurred near the west limb with current sheet-like structures, which are viewed edge-on and thus appear as straight lines. Note that the "west limb" refers to the righthand side of the images; the east-west naming convention for the sun is opposite that of conventional earth maps.
