Amazing! that chunk of sun went off and didn't fall back! would that be a CME?

Yes I think it could be termed a CME.

On space weather they called it a solar torando.

A SOLAR TORNADO JUST LAUNCHED INTO SPACE: A solar tornado was spinning around the sun's north pole yesterday when, suddenly, it lifted off. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the launch:


Unlike tornadoes on Earth, which are shaped by wind, tornadoes on the sun are controlled by magnetism. Solar magnetic fields twist in a furious spiral, dragging clouds of plasma around with them. This particular tornado over-twisted, pinched off, and flew straight away from the sun. The debris will not hit Earth.




SDO data shows it well,I like this one
