On 2011/10/31, XRT observed an unusual series of jets from NOAA active region 11330. These features are thought to be streams of plasma escaping the sun along open magnetic field lines after an interaction between the open line and a small loop nearer the surface, though the physics is not fully understood. What makes this event unusual is that the jets persist for so long in one location. The attached movie shows jets in one spot for around four hours between 13:40 and 17:50 UT.
