Hi.

This morning I had a very great luck with the sun. The sky cleared up and around 11am (local time), I checked at GONG websitte to see what good to sketch. I said to my wife that will not be long as there is only one main prom. By the time I opened my POD, pointed the telescope and prepared the eyepieces, there was a beautiful bright big prom in the FOV. I started sketching around 11:10am and once the main structure completed, I realized that was a rapid flare because all have changed drastically. So I finished my sketch in 10 minutes and go to the next prom. Once the other prom done at 11:30am, I came back to the first one and nothing left !!! What a great moment and lucky moment.
