Today's Prominences & Spicules in High Res | HA | Jan 13th 2019

Post by MalVeauX » Sun Jan 13, 2019 10:10 pm

Heya,

Rained all morning. Sunny Florida! But around 2pm the weather was nice and the seeing was unreal. Seeing was camping on 3/5 and would hit 5/5 significantly often. I find that post-storm seeing is always better than pre-storm. I don't know why. But I always seem to gather superb seeing after a storm rolls through. This is rated based on the stability of the spicules on the limb. Not much to image, large feature wise. A few small prominences, no significant active regions, but a wee filament was noted and the main event for me today was the spicules fields near the limb in high resolution. Always something to see in HA with enough resolution.
