Mahoosive prominence on the Sun’s edge today (11+ Earth-diameters?)

I was lucky to get a couple of hours of reasonably clear sky (still some high hazy thin stuff though) to be able to capture this image.

Definitely a whopper.

An open question. Would really like to know how big it is or how to calculate it?
