Magnetic implosion during the impulsive phase in solar flares is an interesting phenomenon, though it has only been observed in a few cases. It may reveal the decrease of free magnetic energy in the core of an active region. We present recent observations of an excellent example using the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly on the Solar Dynamics Observatory, and demonstrate its intimate correlation with two adjacent flares and a flux rope eruption.
