Re: LASCO 72 Hour Video Sun Grazer

I tend to agree on Jupiter. I suspect the apparent motion animation in SkySafari at that zoom level that close to the Sun is probably not accurate. Now we just need a 72 hour total eclipse so we can test that theory :lol:

Re: LASCO 72 Hour Video Sun Grazer

Re: LASCO 72 Hour Video Sun Grazer

Hi Terry, Thanks for the reply. Before I posted I checked SkySafari and "played" the same timeline with all solar system objects visible. Jupiter is indeed in the neighborhood but its apparent motion is nothing like this object. It is awfully bright and the transit through the field is ver...

LASCO 72 Hour Video Sun Grazer

Watch the past 72 hour video from LASCO C2 above. I’m not seeing anything that matches up to this bright object grazing our star on SkySafari. New comet?

It enters the LASCO C2 frame at 20210127 04:12 and exits at 20210131 10:00

Winter Solstice Prominence Animation

Seasons greetings solar friends. A beautiful weekend here in the US midwest for the winter solstice. I managed a pretty good imaging session yesterday despite the lowest possible angles. Happy holidays to you all!

Hi Brian,
I really like the "melting" prominence in your first few h-alpha images. Also, that is a fantastic rainbow shot.

Alexandra, I love that black and white close up of 2740. That is one tangled knot. I have experienced similar mysteries with the stacking software. I for one rely on its 90% foolproof defaults but struggle when a sequence presents challenges because I haven't acquired sufficient cause and effect ins...
