One last shot of the filaprom

Post by rigel123 »

Cloudy all day long until this afternoon when there were just a few breaks in the clouds and I wanted to grab one more pic of that filaprom on the southern limb. Quick setup with the Port-A-Mount II, and my Lunt LS60T SS. Got one pic and then later tonight I saw on GONG that at around 00:23 UTC, 5/23/2024 that it finally lifted off! At the time I caught it at 20:22 UTC 5/22/2024 it was just about 500,000 kilometers long with a good portion off the disk. Image was shot through a layer of cirrus clouds.

Warren,
Nice catch on that filaprom. I caught it visually this morning. SDO may have a good view of the liftoff.

That's a fantastic image, Warren. I was hoping to image this monster filament but was busy getting a 40 year old filling drilled out and replaced on a back molar. NO FUN!!!!

Fabulous catch Warren! I had it in my mosaic disk early and then when I went to catch as an animation it was gone. On GONG it seemed to just fizzle out.
