Full disk 20-02-2021

Another day with no wind and not even a breeze and sky conditions were very good with a tiny hint of smog but today a good White Light image together with the H-alpha images.

The feather like prominence is about ten Earth diameters long :o

Spots well seen in White light but not in H-alpha

As usual best seen in full size in a new tab/window :bow





regards Rainer

Hi Rainer,
I must totally agree with James's comments.

You've so well captured the proms and filaments and even the spots too.
That spike-filament has come out as good as SDO too. (it is still there at 2100z as the attached shows)...

Thanks vm for sharing again

The long prominence is amazing Rainer, I wonder if it lifted off?

Fabulous to see the spots in the NE too, these are terrific images :bow :hamster:
