As Space Weather writes:

[quote_box_center]Giant filaments like this one are often unstable. They can erupt, hurling parts of themselves into space. Also, fragments falling back to the stellar surface explode, producing a type of flare called a “Hyder flare.” No sunspots are required for this kind of solar activity.[/quote_box_center]

So is the next big Hyder flare around?
