May 24, 2013: Lots of prominences on the eastern limb


Recommended Posts

I have just had an early-morning look at the sun with the LS35, and lots of proms were showing, mainly on the eastern limb. Quite some fireworks there. Lower down are a few very bright ones, whereas higher up a curious, almost tree-like prom stood out. Eastwards of the upper of the two large AR on the surface quite a few dark filaments snaked their way across the surface. I wonder if all those proms herald more ARs.

Sound interesting Michael.

I've just got my new PST back from repair, but I've no sign of the Sun :-( I've noticed lots of activity in VLF radio over the last couple of weeks though.

Make sure you let those of us who are cloud wrapped know what's going on this lunchtime.

I had another look after lunch. Still a lot going on the eastern limb in particular. No spectacularly big proms, but some nice and fairly bright ones showing. On prom towards the north seemed to have a detached part to it.
