Monster Prom on the east limb !!!

Wow, what a monster of a prom visible today on the east limb between 16.35 and 18.21. It is curiously formed with a right angle kink in it so that a the top part of the prom seems to be tilted back to the north as if a blast of wind had pushed it over. To the south of this one was another fainter complex prom of curling plasma strands shaped like worms. The new AR is just visible as a brightening on the surface and small spots may be forming.
