First clear skies in a while and thrilled to see a large prom on the limb of the sun. This is an animation taken from 14:42 - 15:42 UT 12/5/2012.

Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks Michael! I was surprised how well the images processed as the sun looked like a wave machine half the time I was imaging!

Great video!

Yesterday was the first clear day here for 3 or 4 days. I really enjoyed viewing that big prom. Cloudy again, today. :(

Warren.

So nice animation. Just beautiful and fun to compare with my sketch. You are right, its the same prom and about the same shape too. Very good work Warren.

Thanks Andre, I really enjoy your sketches and am always amazed at how realistic they are! It's fun to compare those to an image you have done. I'm about to post a full disk animation which is kind of interesting.
