Re: Christmas Eve Sun

These are wonderful Derek and Merry Christmas to you!

There is a strange ring like structure in the umbra, is that real or just a weird effect through processing?

Re: Comet Lovejoy

Thanks everyone, may be I am not that spatially aware. If we can see the sun and all the way around it the same as the Australians, why can we not see it at sunset (if opposite to the Australians)? I just can't grasp it sorry :(

Comet Lovejoy

I'm probably asking a silly question but why can't we see Comet Lovejoy? if we can see the sun rise in the morning why is it only seen by those in the southern hemisphere when the sun rises in the morning?

Re: Rogerio Marcon's Solar time-lapse H-alpha movies

Hi Steve, It is a question of taking a short 500 frame avi every 1 minute on a particular spot. For processing Andy Devey sent me a lovely tutorial on how to process it, I am sure he would be very happy to send it to you. Say that I recommended it.

Re: Astronomy Night or Day Is The Same

Hi Stephen,
I have seen the aurora here just once in 2003 I think it was. Very unusual here but I think Scotland gets the aurora rather often. It's cloudy again...

Re: Ellerman Bombs in EFR (11381 & 11382)

Wonderful sequence Jim! I hope to do some more viewing in the blue wing this summer, however my filter only goes 0.3A into the blue wing. Will have to see whether I can see the Ellerman bombs or not.
