Hi.

Yesterday I've been able to catch the same group of proms at two different periods of the day. You can clearly see the progression.

Very informative and nice sketches, André! It's wonderful to have your follow up of the sun for us!

Did the filament really appeared between 20:40 and 21:45?

Jean.

Thanks for your comments.

As for the filament, I think I caught it first here on august 16th and now he is about to disappear the other side of the sun.
