SMM C/P CME Event
29 October 1988 --- Day of Year (DOY): 303
Four images of a coronal mass ejection seen over the east limb of the sun. Solar north points toward the upper left corner in each image.
Bright (multiple?) loop/cavity and core superposed on tongue from previous event. Core contains embedded, twisted (prominence?) structures. Loop is 'light-bulb' shaped from 20:19 until ~21:45. Large deflections. Region and tongue are blown out.

Central Position Angle: 109 degrees
Width (in degrees): 043 degrees
Speed (in km/sec): 479 <--- Cavity
