Hi

A luck today with an unexpected big hole in the clouds before it get back to overcast. The sun activity was magnificent my friends. So nice bright proms moving rapidly and what about this beautiful large filament emerging from the prom. WOW. And the atmosphere was very calm even if it was really windy.

Excellent, as always. I see that, just like Michel, you saw a wonderful elongated structure on the bottom part of the sun. Very impressive!

Hi.

Thank you guys. I can't get bored to sketch the sun. It's too much fun.

I added my two close up. Now I'm going outside to sketch it again, very beautiful clear and sunny day on this saturday.

Andre.

Hahahaaaa... You couldn't resist doing a close-up of exactly the structure I pointed out, so it must really have been a specific feature on the sun's surface over the past few days. Great job!

Andre,

Very fine solar sketch. The solar surface is dancing in H-alpha.

Frank :)
