"A New View of Coronal Waves from STEREO,"
ApJ 707, 503 (2009).
Solar flares often emit global waves, and these are crucial to our understanding of the large-scale dynamics even though they do not appear in many of our cartoons. But in spite if this good reason to have this cartoon in the Archive, it is here only because it is beautiful. It shows how one might interpret the stereoscopic views of a global wave that our new multi-perspective data provide. EUVI B, EIT, and EUVI A are the three EUV-imaging spacecraft here.
