In this event, a solar radio burst in the range of 45-165 MHz with energy of to Joule with 0.8 MHz/ second have been correlated with the optical solar prominence. In combination of the optical, radio and X-ray observation, the occurrence of the event has been proposed. The active region of the prominence was AR2403. An individual type III burst was observed at 19:40 UT. The burst lasts for 15 minutes with a drift rate of 0.8 MHz/s. This burst was recorded by the Compound Astronomical Low-cost Low-frequency Instrument for Spectroscopy and Transportable Observatory (CALLISTO) at Almaty Site. From 29th August 2015 onwards, the total magnetic flux increases gradually to over four-fold the initial value during development and levels off around 29th August 2015. It was found that B3 solar flare, followed by a slow coronal mass ejection (CME), is released from NOAA 2403 on 31st August 2015. The region is beyond -30 longitude at the time of the flare, making it impossible to reliably measure any magnetic properties involving gradients. The overall increase of Beff prior to the flare is indicative of an increase in polarity mixing within the AR, which has been shown to be related to flaring. Understanding of the exact nature of the initiation of these events is still incomplete.
