AbstractContext. Sympathetic eruptions of two solar filaments have been studied for several decades, but the detailed physical process through which one erupting filament triggers another is still under debate.Aims. Here we aim to investigate the physical nature of a sympathetic event involving successive eruptions of two filaments on 2015 November 15-16, which presented abundant sympathetic characteristics.Methods. Combining data from the Solar Dynamics Observatory and other observatories as well as results of nonlinear force-free field (NLFFF) extrapolations, we study the evolution of observational features and magnetic topology during the sympathetic event.Results. The two filaments (north F1 and south F2) were separated by a narrow region of negative polarity, and F1 first erupted, producing a two-ribbon flare. When the outward-spreading ribbon produced by F1 approached stable F2, a weak brightening was observed to the south of F2 and then spread northward, inward approaching F2. Behind this inward-spreading brightening, a dimming region characterized by a plasma density reduction of 30% was extending. NLFFF extrapolations with a time sequence reveal that fields above pre-eruption F1 and F2 constituted a quadrupolar magnetic system with a possible null point. Moreover, the null point kept moving toward F2 and descending within the following hours. We infer that the rising F1 pushed its overlying fields toward the fields above stable F2 and caused successive external reconnection between the overlying fields. From outside to inside (lower and lower in height), the fields above pre-eruption F2 were gradually involved in the reconnection, manifesting as the inward-spreading brightening and extending dimming on the south side of F2. Furthermore, the external reconnection could reconfigure the overlying fields of F2 by transporting magnetic flux from its west part to the east part, which is further verified by the subsequent partial eruption of F2.Conclusions. We propose an integrated evidence chain to demonstrate the critical roles of external magnetic reconnection and the resultant reconfiguration of overlying fields on the sympathetic eruptions of two filaments.
