Figure 1

Field-line traces in the analytic spheromak flux-rope model seen from two different view points. Prominence material would theoretically sit below the thick black line, which traces the flux-rope axis, in the dips of the magnetic field. We used the orientation in b) in the forward calculations, with the magnetic field along the axis pointed toward the observer. An animated version of this figure is available in the electronic supplementary material.
