Large Prominence, 09-07-18

Post by MalVeauX » Fri Sep 07, 2018 3:15 pm

Heya,

Horrible seeing today, and ridiculous stormy weather with several major cyclone storms off the coast and a hurricane on our Eastern side. I suppose I'm lucky to see the sun at all, let alone get data on it. I was hoping for fair seeing and attempted to image at large scale, but the seeing barely supported even attempting anything. Then a rain system came in, so that shut down my day. Not even 09:30am yet and it's over. Hah, sunny Florida...

Great image Marty. I have seen that prominence on the screen of my PC while imaging the disc in Ca-H, it was really impressive.

For fun, around 4:45pm, there was a small break in the clouds. I couldn't help myself. So, I grabbed some CaK data and animated it.

Excellent images, I saw the proms on GONG and thought they looked nice.

Also the animation is very interesting, it shows exactly what Mark T's animations do, a strange circular motion of the super granulation spicules, it is very hypnotic.

That is the calcium "straw field" blowing in the wind like tall golden wheatfields. The calcium chromospheric spicule layer :)
