Sun today September 19th, 2020 low activity

Post by ffellah » Sat Sep 19, 2020 9:55 pm

Hello everybody: a beautiful weekend with the sky clearing here, becoming blue again but awful seeing. There was wind this morning, the image was frying in front of my eyes. Only one image to show with a couple of prominences.

Hope you did better than me :roll: .

Excellent colouring of the two prominence-images, which show the small-prominences available today.

Thanks

Terry

Nice fine detail in those, Franco. Too bad about the low activity though indeed.

Thank you, James and Stu: yesterday late afternoon when I saw that large and complex prominence I was hoping that someone in the group would capture it, and they did !
