Big congratulations to our Stuart with a runner up, what a cracking image!

Many thanks everyone. Much appreciated. Glad you like the image.

It was my birthday when I took this lucky shot of a beautiful prominence which erupted following a large solar flair. Actually, some of you on this site got a better view than I did of the more spectacular plasma loops that followed. I was buried in cloud by that time with no chance of Imaging the full spectacle.

Thanks for posting the link Alexandra.
