Solar disc after the thunderstorm


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

this morning, I woke up because of lightning and thunder here in Dusseldorf area.  After the thunderstorm had moved away towards northeast- and before the next bunch of clouds appeared, I enjoyed the sunshine on the home terrace. To maximize my joy, I set up the H-alpha-telescope to have a look at the solar "weather". 

This time I once again chose natural vine charcoal which is made of the very same atoms than the solar nucleus: carbon. The prominence on the top limb of my sketch was pretty tricky to sketch its set of needle-sharp "rays" in front of the foggy background. Let me share this sketch here as my second contribution to the solar imaging challenge:
