Fig.13 (~0.1Mb): CME observed by the LASCO C3 coronagraph. There is a bright feature in the CME images at a position angle of 110 degrees. The ejection at this position angle first appears above the 3.4 solar radii occulting disc at 09:32 UT. It brightens and expands outwards, such that by 16:48 UT there is a bright region linking back to the Sun. These images contain the pylon for the occulting disc at a position angle of 135 degrees, which appears as a streak of bright points extending to the edge of the image. The frame at 18:10 UT shows a rarefaction which is moving out ahead of the bright feature.
