The Sun 16-6-08 6.54 UT and 19.04 UT

Up early before work and the sky was clear blue, but the seeing was quite poor. There was a very large prom on the SSE limb with another growing on exactly the opposite side of the disk. Two faint and very short filaments were recorded along with the extremely faint remains of 998. A new active region (999) was announced on Spaceweather.com and this can just be seen faintly on the east limb. At 19.04 UT I took some more photos through wispy cloud. The large prom has grown and is putting on quite a display with fine strands of plasma in the curtain. Two distinctive long filaments have appeared to the west of the large prom.
