I do say approximate. I only claculate the length of the line that I draw, do not make account for the curves nor the curvature of the sun etc...
That is a beautiful movie of Aug. 4th, lots of movement.

Andy, how much time does that animation portray of that filament? That is an amazing video!

Ray, I was inspired by your stunning photos and so I did some internet research to see if any one had put anything together on a simple method of how to estimate the length of solar filaments and came up with nothing?
I have an idea of putting something together as a draft document and then posting it on this forum to invite comments. Can I use your two excellent full disc photographs posted above as a basis for this document and I shall certainly credit them to you.
