Monster prominence
      #5336795 - 07/26/12 02:40 PM

This morning I aimed my 70mm solar telescope at the sun and I almost got blown away by what I saw. I GIANT prominence on the north eastern limb. I hovered above the surface like a huge dragon.

I made a sketch with white pastels on black paper, color added and orientation-flip with Photoshop.

Roel, I am amazed by the level of perfection you can reach with pastel!!!! I saw beautiful images of this enormous puff, but your sketch is way better than most.

I, myself observed this baby yesterday and I was flabbergasted and knock out of my shoes by its magnifiscence...

Your sketch is an inspiration!

Bravo!!!!

Jean

Just staggeringly beautiful work you do with the sun, Roel. Just beautiful.

Alex.
