Fireworks on the limb - returning AR3664

Post by Rob63 »

Managed a quick capture when I got home from work. Sun very low and awful seeing but you can see the AR formally known as AR3664 approaching the limb and is still putting on an awesome display. The next week should be very interesting (if the rain ever stops here).

Nice catch Rob. The loops and spikes are really thin and sharp and the filaprom shows up very well.
