Today's Proms & Spicules | HA | Nov 23rd 2018

Post by MalVeauX » Fri Nov 23, 2018 5:58 pm

Heya,

Fairly void disc today. A very small active region is near the limb, but no significant filaments or prominences around it unfortunately. A few small filaments are floating around the disc. There's a few fairly decent prominences, one is fairly bright and interesting, maybe it will continue to evolve to something a little bigger and brighter. No visible spots again.
