June 5, 2013: One very bright prom and a few smaller ones during lunch

Recommended Posts

During my regular lunchtime solar sessions I spotted a really massive prom northwards on the western limb. Very nice indeed, and easily spotted by the colleagues, students and post-docs who joined me. I also spotted a fainter, but still substantial prom southwards of it. Some more prolonged viewing bagged a few faint thin ones almost due south, and a very flat arc in the middle of the eastern limb (maybe the herald of things to come?). The surface was very quiet, with a few filaments and bright and dark swirls showing around the only sunspots visible today. The rest of the surface was more-or-less like the peel of an orange in texture.

If the lovely weather continues, I will have another go later
