Happy 2018 to all

Post by ffellah » Sun Dec 31, 2017 7:23 pm

Looking back to 2017, I think we had a quite remarkable solar year. We were able to witness a total solar eclipse, AR 2673 and 2674 and a fantastic episode of coronal rain. I started learning high-resolution imaging, among many other things.

This community has been a real great companion for me during the year: I feel I have many friends around the world to share our passion for the sun.

I wish everybody a just as wonderful and healthy (and fun) 2018 with many sunny days and great gear to image the sun !

Happy New Year! what an amazing set, I do like number 1 :bow :hamster: I hope 2018 may be even more successful but I don't think you can beat the eclipse :)
