Hi.

I was hoping some remaining big proms of the last three days and some were still there. But more, one of them lift off at the moment I was sketching the area in my close up. So the little arc at 10 o'clock on my full disk, started lifting off 10 to 15 minutes later and was very quick. I caught it on my close up but wouldn't be able to catch it again because to fast. 10 minutes after my close up done, it was gone.

Andre.

It's a relief to see our sun in good hand with you, André! ... and a relief to see it still has some nice proms in store for us.

Very lovely work, my friend!

Jean

More amazing sketches, Andre. Finally some clear skies and some decent seeing here today, too. The sun has a lot going on right now. I've been out for two hours.

Andre,
Another great sketch. The one prominence at the top looks as though it is leaping!

I can only imagine the actual size of the flares.

Joli André, the sun is full of surprises no? The active period is not gone, good for you. Bravo for the last sketches.
