The Sun 5-4-09 – Nice prom in NE

Somebody needs to scrub the atmosphere! Today was almost a repeat of yesterday with a clear blue sky very early (at 7am according to my wife – I was still asleep!) then conditions deteriorated quickly with two cloud layers at different heights crossing from the south and west. All the images were done through a milky haze. The best prom was in the NE – a really nice large flame prom with fine vertical strands. Other proms were present in the SE and SW, but were very faint. The decaying flux area in the NW could just be seen right on the limb and there was a small spot of plage in the SE quarter.
