Lovely filament and proms today

Recommended Posts

Wasn’t expecting any sunshine today, but the clouds parted an hour ago to reveal a really lovely solar disc - the best filament for a while and some superb proms. If you get the chance, well worth a look.

I agree.  I had a look around 10am for a while in some gaps in the heavy cloud, and at that time it was very impressive.  GONG indicates the filament is still very srriking as it was when I was observing - and that was with a PST.

The proms look less active than at 10am on the current GONG images.

Proms spectacular right now - grabbing quick views between clouds but well worth getting the scope out.

Agreed Mark. The prom on the eastern side is lifting off. Quite a few proms plus some small filaments together with a plage area.

Well worth a look.
