AR2785 & New Big Spot and Looping Prominence!, Discs | Nov 23rd 2020

Post by MalVeauX » Mon Nov 23, 2020 5:12 pm

Hey all,

Woke up to a non-cloudy day, rare for me lately with the storms. Anyhow, took a chance on the seeing and it was poor to average so worked with the 120mm aperture. AR2783 persists and is still an interesting region, but AR2785 and it's neighboring new big spot has taken the show! There's a nice hedge prominence near by and big filament under it, along with small surge prominences shooting up from the region. But most interesting is the faint looping prominence over the region!

Marty,
You must have taken these very close to my observing time. I see the two tiny proms I saw near AR12785 in your images and the large prom is shaped the same. You have MUCH better detail though!

Hi Marty'
You have done so well in capturing these exemplary images which deserve some of the highest marks possible for their presentation, colouring, close-up's, prominences etc., etc.

Thanks for the effort and sharing.

Terry
