Animation of returning AR3663 and proms East Limb 5/25/2024

Post by rigel123 »

Caught a break with about an hour and a half of clear skies (OK, a few clouds went by!) for this animation of a still active, AR3663, now AR3691. Lots of surge proms and then a nice floating prom on the limb. After catching 1 hour 16 minutes I switched to WL and CaK and was just able to eke out a full disk for both. Ha-Lunt LS60T DS WL-Orion ED80T and Lunt 1.25" WL Wedge CaK-Orion ED80T and Lunt CaK BF1200. Saturn-M SQR for all images with a Meade 2X Barlow

These are great Warren. Your animation has a ton of fine details. I am just wondering if that big slug on the SE could be the first signs of AR3664 returning? I am look at that part of the Sun now and it is quite amazing. I just got an hour in on AR3691 (x AR3663).

Warren,
Love that animation. It really conveys the activity and power of our dynamic solar neighbor.

That little floating prom looks bristling with activity in your animation.

Great work, Master Warren!! :bow

Thanks Peter, Paul (what, no Mary?) and James! I forgot about 3664 Peter! I love looking back over animations like this, I just discovered a small looping filament erupt about in the center of the disk portion in the video.
