May Day Filaprom East Solar Limb sketch - PST 40 with 8mm eyepiece - h alpha
09:30 UT - 09:50 UT and 10:10 UT Pastels , Pencil , Conte
I was fascinated watching this large U shaped filaprom hanging the East limb this morning.
I was out of some of my usual sketching material so just went at it another way.
As sketched and observed the first view , it seemed to me that the U shaped thin filaprom had another one anchored to it at two points. It was difficult to see the filament part of the lower prom so if it was coming off the higher loop it was unusual in that aspect. The lower filaprom was huge and it appeared to change shape rapidly. So to show it changing shape I just used the same limb sketch to draw it a second and third time under each other. In reality the position of the feature had not changed that dramatically in the short time. However the shape of it did , in particular I liked the lower prom which had a circle of nothing within this swirling exuberance this morning.

Thanks Frank :flower:
Aquarellia, Ken and Jef

Jef I used a soft yellow pastel , rubbed it into the paper and then used an orange soft pastel and rubbed it over that. Messy but a good enough result .
