Sun Today

Post by MapleRidge » Sat Jan 21, 2012 10:12 pm

Hello everyone...

This is my first post since joining last week, but I wanted to compliment everyone who has posted images. These are a wonderfull assembly of work, using a wide variety of equipment and talents which shows the success that we can achieve. Thanks for sharing.

I have been trying to post a few images from today, but Interent Explorer crashes each time I try to attach an imge, so I will take another try later in the day when I have more time. There was some beautiful activity around the large complex of active regions and a large filament that was active as well. If it holds together another day or two it will make a spectacular prominance on the west limb.

Back with some images...hopefully,
Brian
