Hi.

Fitting against the clouds, I've been able to catch these two sketches where for the first time I caught a prom starting from the surface to the edge and two nice floating ones.

Andre.

Andre,

I see that floating prom in your first sketch is about the same length as the Earth's circumference. I can imagine that great distance but it is more difficult to imagine the enormous size of our star.

Frank.

Yes, you are right, the length of this prom is longer than the earth circumference. This sketch is one of my favorite because the floating prom and the one starting on the surface to end on the limb. I like it very much.

Andre.
