Today's Filaments, Prominences, AR & Discs | HA, CaK, GBand | July 2nd 2020

Post by MalVeauX » Thu Jul 02, 2020 7:41 pm

Hey all,

I got a clear morning and despite all the nasty storms and dust clouds, seeing was decent for the first little bit of my day. The chain of filaments on the limb is fantastic and there are two large prominence groupings. They were bright enough to capture even in Calcium. The big chain of filaments should make for a great prominence limb by next week perhaps if they cling to the surface long enough! Also included the small pore in the dipole with the most activity showing a plage and filaments being produced in the active region in Gband with convection cells. Earth scales on the false colored images.

Marty,
Nice to see you back with such good images. I love the clarity in which you captured all those filaments on the NE disc. Awesome! Those proms showed up amazingly well in CaK too!

Thank you all, :bow

The Western limb prom has vanished, lifted off and broke up. But that big Southern quadrant group is larger than yesterday, truly a big prom today! I'm clouded over so likely will not see it. It's in a lovely position next to some activity near the limb too. If you have a moment go look at it, it's huge!

Very best,
