Hi.

Like Michel, I did a full disk sketch and a close up of the nice filament. I caught the new sunspot emerging near the big filament. Because of a very thin cloud layer, I almost missed the very faint prom at 9 o'clock. It seem it was brighter when Michel did it. According to what I was observing, it was almost gone as visible on GONG animation.

Andre.

Yes, now the S-like structure is a lot clearer, just like on Michel's drawing. The faint prom on the left is spectacular indeed!
