Filaments have a possibility to be hurled into space and generate a coronal mass ejection. This however can't be predicated.

Gotcha. I guess I hadn't see that term used before. 2765 has been interesting to follow in terms of development.

It is indeed a filament elevated between two areas of opposite polarities. Guess the term magnetic tail sounds more exciting to them! :D Sunspot region 2765 remains a fairly simple sunspot region so in that way it isn't very interesting but looking at the bigger picture it could signal that we have passed solar minimum. Be sure to read our news item from a little while ago if you haven't done so already.
