In this study, we investigate an extreme ultraviolet (EUV) wave event on 2010 February 11, which occurred as a limb event from the Earth viewpoint and a disk event from the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory-Behind viewpoint. We use the data obtained by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly on board the Solar Dynamics Observatory in various EUV channels. The EUV wave event was launched by a partial prominence eruption. Compared with some EUV wave events in previous works, this EUV wave event contains a faster wave with a speed of ~445±6 kms-1, which we call a coronal Moreton wave, and a slower wave with a speed of ~298 ±5 kms-1, which we call the Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT) wave. The coronal Moreton wave is identified as a fast-mode wave and the EIT wave is identified as an apparent propagation due to successive field-line stretching. We also observe a stationary front associated with the fast-mode EUV wave. This stationary front is explained as mode conversion from the coronal Moreton wave to a slow-mode wave near a streamer.
