Hi.

Arriving from work, I sketched the sun at 8am under very good conditions but no time to do some close up unfortunately. When I get back mid afternoon, conditions where very worst.

What an active sun with lot of proms, tons of sunspots and filaments plus two very bright areas. Beautiful.

Andre.

Andre,
Nice work. Yesterday I was viewing some amazing activity. One prom looked like a massive Y shaped tree.

Thank you so much guys.

I'm very busy, no much time to come on the forum and to treat my very late sun sketches...

Andre.
