Solar prominence.

This image was taken on the 19/03/2011 with a Lunt 60mm single stack operating at 0.7 Angstroms. Saturday morning was a very active time for prominences, but not too good for sunspot observers. Steve

Yes, there was a huge prominence at 12:08 on Sat 19 March. I missed it, but I saw remains in the afternoon which were still quite big.

David, I managed the morning display but other duties called me away so I missed the finale which was a shame, but not to worry I am sure there will be other opportunities. Steve
