Hi.

For those who wouldn't be able to figure out what they are looking about some arch starting from the surface going out to the limb, here what I think it is. Correct me if I'm wrong.

When looking at this sketch, you may think the arch is starting on the surface going out joining the prom on the limb.

But in fact, it's the opposite. The prom is not really visible behind the limb and ejecting plasma from it's position to the surface farther like this prom is doing. It's like a cannon throwing a bullet from behind the wall to the enemy field.

Andre, seeing something like that arch has to be amazing. Almost 3 dimensional. Well done, sir, showing it to us in another fine sketch.
