Sun Dragon!

I am on a camping holiday in wales, I brought some Astro imaging equipment and my Quark 

the sun has been really interesting and it’s been such a privilege to have had the time and the weather to “play” to my hearts content! 

Whilst looking today I saw AR 3032 traversing the limb and for a few minutes it resembled a dragon!

I have captured a solar Dragon whilst on a Welsh cliff side! 

😊

Thanks for looking

Thought I’d better update this image to correct its orientation 

This is probably a better representation of its proper place on the sun?

That certainly does look like a dragon as well!!!

Thanks Pete

I was lucky to be viewing at that moment  as it kept that shape for a couple of minutes 😊

Cheers

Very beautiful image. I think the orientation of the first photograph is superior, artistically. Perhaps, just add a note to it to indicate the "improper" orientation. That you captured this in Wales is an added bonus!

There is no up and down in space! ;)

I agree, the first image was my preferred angle, I added the second after following a thread where the “proper orientation” of an image was the main subject of discussion so I thought I should re-present it more accurately to satisfy the purists in this hobby 

I was so lucky to be observing from the right angle at that moment, one that will unlikely happen again, and in Wales too! 
Yup, it’s a special image 😊

Thank you for your kind comment
