The clarity today was amazing, I managed to view at 100x the entire session...Because of that, my scale it even more out of whack than normal...

Crayola Cerulean pencil for plage
Crayola Aqua Green pencil for proms

white 20# paper with Aqua Green disk
I scan into photoshop and invert.

Stephen,

An outstanding observation of very large and impressive prominences along the solar limb. It must have been exciting to watch this stellar show. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Sadly, there just hasn't been many this year, slowest since 1913...But I've seen all there has been to see! :-)
