After almost three months of cloudy and cold weather in Belgium (you almost question global warming :grin:) we had today a sunny sky. Hope you like it.

Jef,

That is a vivid and spectacular solar sketch in H-alpha.
You must be thrilled with a clear day.

Frank :)

Oh, so beautiful and indeed so "alive". I think it's the way you draw the shadows that make your sketch so striking and almost three-dimentional. Very well done, Jef! You're a great artist!

Thanks all!

Because tomorrow the clouds will roll in again, I sketched today the 4 most biggest prominences.

Prominence D looks like a cresting wave. Nice Work.
