Mercury can be seen now in the C3 FOV, in the southern hemisphere, moving from right to left. It is expected to be in the C3 FOV until around Feb 2.
00:30 UT WS West Big and bright loop front (brighter to N) with inner core. 01:31 UT ES East Elongated fan-like front that fades close to the inner edge of C3. 09:30 UT N East Diffuse brightening develops as an elongated loop front. Pseudo-continuous loop fronts developing afterward rotating toward the N Pole and up to NNW by the beginning of next day. 09:30 UT S East Brightening along streamer immediately followed by a bright loop front, which starts to be seen at around 10:06 UT. Very bright and big core follows slightly shifted to S (prominence material). The event starts to be seen in C3 at 11:18 UT developing as a ragged loop front with a bright inner core. Some faint extensions can be seen to N, extending up to almost NE. Gusty outflow follows well into next day. EIT 195 images show the lift-off of a very large prominence between 09:36 - 11:36 UT, which appears to originate well behind the limb.
S East Strong gusty outflow continues. By the beginning of the day, the slow development of a system of faint loops starts to be distinguished superposed in the LOS with the gusty outflow. 09:30 UT W Limb Faint jet-like front that quickly fades. Last C2 image available by the time of writing: 15:06 UT.
