Prominence, Active Region | HA | Jan 12th 2019

Post by MalVeauX » Sat Jan 12, 2019 7:19 pm

Heya,

Woke up to some clouds, bummed, so just carried on with the morning. Noticed some light off my kitchen faucet so I peaked out and the clouds has moved on and I had a little window between more weather. I did some testing and gathered data on the brighter prominences and while scanning the chromosphere in high resolution I found a subtle active region that was interesting showing signs of a birthing plage and some filament generating activity swirling about so I grabbed data on that in case it becomes anything interesting later. No other major features currently.

Marty,

Interesting looking prom. I like it! You had to look very hard to find something on the surface today.
