The Sun 6-9-08 – Nice Arch Proms

I did not really expect to be seeing any sun today as the forecast was for cloud and heavy showers. Then just before 1pm I saw a distant patch of blue sky heading our way. After what must have been the fastest setup ever I managed to capture four whole disk surface and prom videos with the DMK41AU02.AS between 12.53 and 12.59 BST before the sun was blanked out again for the rest of the day – phew that was close! A nice array of fine arch prominences was on display all around the limb and some faint filaments – well worth the effort!
