Here my last sun's sketch, done through my small Lunt T35 Halpha and a zoom eyepiece.
Waiting for any shape change or exotic movement, I had the opportunity to catch 3 views of a small C-class(?) solar flare. The activity was very bright and was active during 4 minutes max, so I did 3 very (oh yes very) quick sketches here under.

Stunning, as always, Michel! I particularly love the close-ups where you've kept the rest of the sun's surface dark in order to have the flare stand out. Very nice idea! I love it! :D

Thank you Peter.
I just try to make a mobile "gif" of the nice prom at 10 O'clock of my sketch.
