What was that bright thing?

Post by Bruce Girrell » Sun Mar 04, 2018 6:03 pm

Up in the sky...
Normally the sky is a pretty uniform shade of gray throughout the day. But there was a strange bright object up there yesterday. I tried to take a picture of it, but it didn't turn out so well. I was never able to get much detail in the disk. I'm out of practice for sure.

What a stunning prominence! :bow :hamster:
Probably no detail on the disc because there isn't any :lol:
