The Sun – Big Prom in the SW

Very dodgy trying to image the sun today in between fast moving and heavy showers. I gave up after snatching a quick view of the large quiescent prominence visible in the SW at PA 220 degrees. Its a lovely sight with fine hair strands of plasma ascending four earth diameters high above the chromosphere. Another large prominence lifted off the surface earlier this morning with huge arcing strands of plasma floating off into space at PA 300 degrees in the NW. The elongated filament associated with AR 1271 is approaching the limb and should provide a nice filaprom view in the next 24 hours over on the western limb. Over in the east spots in active regions 1277 and 1279 are well defined now.
