AR2727, Spicules, Proms, Full Disc | HA | Nov 18th 2018

Post by MalVeauX » Sun Nov 18, 2018 5:39 pm

Heya,

AR2727 is lovely today, nearing the limb with lots of contrast at this angle. Not a lot of big proms going on. Mostly just small feint stuff. A little persistent filament is floating around still too. Took a look at just the common features such as spicules both at the center of the disc and around the edges, without any active regions nor major prominences, which I find really interesting (always something lovely to see in HA!).

My favourite is the first too, that AR has really matured into quite a large AR , it is a pity it is growing just as it reaches the limb.
