Incredible Solar Flare

A couple of days ago the sun erupted with a medium size solar flare and accompanying CME (coronal mass ejection)  The flare also displaced a large filament, the long stringing thing shooting up, which slowly rained backed down on the sun (coronal rain).  I've never seen such a display of coronal rain.  Impressive and beautiful.  Please note, this is completely normal for the sun to have these eruptions.
