This "lightbulb" Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) shows the three classical parts of a CME: leading edge, void, and core. Taken on February 27, 2000 by the LASCO C3 coronagraph.

In coronagraph images, direct sunlight is blocked by an occulter, revealing the surrounding faint corona. The approximate size of the Sun is represented by the white circle.
