This great proton flare followed the sequence: (1) Precursor flare; (2) Filament eruption; (3) Beginning in penumbra of large spot; (4) Rapid elongation in two strands; (5) Great spray and surface wave; (6) Rapid separation of two strands to maximum brightness; and (7) Slow speed of brightness and decay.
