Major Prominence! | Sept 30th 2019

Post by MalVeauX » Tue Oct 01, 2019 1:08 am

Heya,

Late this evening the small bright prominence on the West limb lifted off and became enormous (1730 Eastern Time). It's still present even now but it has spread out and gotten fainter. I managed to get some tolerable data in poor seeing late evening after a few attempts. Lovely huge prominence with lots of interesting raining detail. Earth scale provided, it truly is a monster.
