Exciting morning, post flare loops animation and images 6/10/2024

Post by rigel123 »

I woke to a notification from Spaceweather Live about an X1.55 flare from AR13697 at 11:08 UTC so quickly set up as the sun had not yet cleared the trees at the time. By 11:58 it had cleared and I caught a full disk and then started an animation of the developing post flare loops. I was able to capture 1 1/2 hours of them before clouds shut that down, so the animation is between 12:01 - 13:31 UTC. You can see near the end of the animation a secondary flare at 13:00 UTC at M1.8 at which time a second set of loops developed but was cut off from the Ha animation. There were some sucker holes at 13:49 UTC when I switched to the Orion ED80T with the Lunt BF1200 CaK filter along with the 40mm mask and I caught the full disk and the second set of loops before it totally clouded over. It was nice to catch the loops looking through the arch for a change, although, anytime you catch post flare loops is a treat! Ha captured with the Lunt LS60T DS/Saturn-M SQR/Meade shorty 2X barlow.

Closeups and the animations have been rotated 90 degrees CCW for viewing.

It was a solar morning I entirely missed. We had thunderstorms and heavy rain. I too got the alert for the X1.55 flare on SWL.

The animation is beautiful. Those delicate post flare loops are gorgeous!! :hamster:

Warren,

It fell a bit early for me to get to plus I was under storms. And on top of that my sister was up for the weekend so I had little time to observe.

Thanks for the views!!
