An interesting prom on the southern limb today. One shot with the 2.5x barlow.

A bit quiet on the surface today but this area looked interesting.

David,

Nice capture. I am curious as to the time the looping prom images were made. I finally got my Lunt 60 out yesterday after weeks of clouds and really enjoyed watching that one for about 90 minutes. At about 3:30 PM Eastern, at least visually it looked like that large lump had separated from its spiky base. Seeing was horrible, so it may have still been connected and I couldn't make out the connection. Just curious.

Hi Jim,
This was about 01:00 UTC if that helps.

Great shots David! It looks like the base of that looping prom has thinned out a bit so wondering if it is about to lift off.

That Hedgerow prom was there yesterday as well but I haven't tried processing that one yet. I love that image of it, great details in there!

Thanks, David. I was observing 6-7 hours after you, so there could have been a lift off.
