Filament vs Prominence

Filament vs Prominence. A filament is a long cord like structures that sometimes release in beautiful displays and sometimes they don't. When it's on the edge so that is stands out against the black
background it is called a prominence. When it is further in and harder to make out it is a filament. We have two great arcing prominences releasing right now.
