Today's Prominences & New Active Region with Looping Filaments! 120mm HA, Sept 29th 2018

Heya,

A great prom has developed on the limb, and a little active region with some flaring has woken up since yesterday and it has two small visible umbra with a filament near it, the filament(s) are looping or spiraling, quite interesting, with flaring around it, quite nice to look at in higher resolution. Hopefully it will quickly develop into a full blown spot with a numerical designation. I grabbed a few frames of data over 30 minutes and managed an animation to show the very fast dynamic movement of the filament.

Celestron Omni XLT 120mm F8 Refractor + Quark + ASI174MM

B&W:

This first one is an animation of 30 minutes time lapsed:
