AR2724, Flaring, Animation, Proms and Full Disc | HA | Oct 13th 2018

Post by MalVeauX » Sat Oct 13, 2018 7:53 pm

Heya,

Well, Hurricane Michael is gone (we were ok in my area in Florida) and my sky is clear again. It's been over 90 degrees F every day and humid and yet today I woke up to chilly temperatures and frost on my grass of all things. I had a clear sky all morning so I left my scope pointed at AR2724 to do a timelapse animation for about an hour (I had to toss a few frames that were really bad, so it reduced to 48 minutes of real time). AR2724 was flaring when I looked at it around 09:30am Eastern time zone, then it stopped flaring and it was pretty dormant after that up to around 11:00am later on. But, the filaments were moving around rapidly. AR2724 has several visible umbra and the filaments are dancing around invisible curves away from one umbra and off to another. It's really interesting compared to the other AR's we've had the past few months. I captured a few different times to show the changes in the filaments about 30 minutes apart. There's big persistent filament that might make for a really great prominence show in the next few days. There's a few fairly large prominences making a nice grouping on the limb right now still too.

No joke, frost on my grass this morning.... in Florida! It's legit 104 degrees F in my observatory right now later in the day.

I don't know why the GIF won't auto play.... maybe it was too big?

Here's the animation on my Astrobin:
