And this is a sequence of the most incredible prominence I have ever seen, the whole sequence is just over one half hour. I threw together a quick video as well: Youtube

Beautiful documentation of the prominences. I especially like the sequence. I know you must have been thrilled to watch the change. That is the part that many have never witnessed. The sheer dynamism. It's alive! I watched a prominence like a long spiky shoestring while on the 10,000 mile road trip in 2000 stretch out over double the suns diameter and allowed the public to view it at an outside coffee house in Whitefish Montana. After 30 minutes it was gone. *That was through a Daystar .5 angstrom mated to a Celestron 8" Cassegrain that I took across the nation (not my current 40mm Coronado.) >

Have you considered sending your images to Spaceweather.com ? If so, you have to be prompt as Dr. Tony Phillips posts images sometimes within minutes of solar observers sending. I can alert others to observe immediately and take note of changes. So it becomes a collaborative or peer review science (if even slightly delayed.) It is permanently archived in the Spaceweather back pages.

That sequence of sketches you produced is excellent. I wish we could get some clearing here in Portland. It has been solid clouds and rain for over two weeks now. I can't even see the new moon!

In the name of science! . . . and of course observational art!

TE,

Excellent observations of prominences. They appear to come to life in your fine renderings. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Carlos
