A Chain of Winking (Oscillating) Filaments Triggered by an Invisible Extreme-Ultraviolet Wave View all abstracts by submitter

Winking (oscillating) filaments have been observed for many years. However, observations of successive winking filaments in one event have not been reported yet. In this paper, we present the observations of a chain of winking filaments and a subsequent jet that are observed right after the X2.1 are in AR11283. The event also produced an Extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) wave that has two components: upward dome-like wave (850 km s-1) and lateral surface wave (554 km s-1) which was very weak (or invisible) in imaging observations. By analyzing the temporal and spatial relationships between the oscillating filaments and the EUV waves, we propose that all the winking filaments and the jet were triggered by the weak (or invisible) lateral surface EUV wave. The oscillation of the filaments last for two or three cycles, and their periods, Doppler velocity amplitudes, and damping times are 11 - 22 minutes, 6 - 14 km s-1, and 25 - 60 minutes, respectively. We further estimate the radial component magnetic field and the maximum kinetic energy of the filaments, and they are 5 - 10 Gauss and ~ 1019 J, respectively. The estimated maximum kinetic energy is comparable to the minimum energy of ordinary EUV waves, suggesting that EUV waves can efficiently launch filament oscillations on their path. Based on our analysis results, we conclude that the EUV wave is a good agent for triggering and connecting successive but separated solar activities in the solar atmosphere, and it is also important for producing solar sympathetic eruptions.
