Friends, a few minutes ago I started a post about this, but apparently it did not work, so excuse me if it doubles.
There is at this moment a gigantic jet on top of the Sun, since my crowned the Eiffel Tower looks inclined. It's the biggest thing I've seen in recent times.
I pass the data to see if some of the forum photographers get a good shot of the event.
Regards !

Yes, it looks like a huge thorn coming out of the disk!

Well at least I know what I'm missing... you've confirmed my suspicion that there's something good going on behind my solid cloud cover for days. frown.gif

 

Guess I'll have to drag the lunt out when I get home and sit hoping for a quick hole in the clouds. 4.gif

Hi,

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't have time to do any imaging today, but enjoyed the visual-one of the nicest proms that I've seen in the past 3 or 4 months.

I need a picture of it to print out.  Then I can hang it at a distance and look at it through a regular scope to pretend I'm really seeing it. Maybe that will help the delirious tremors from from my solar withdrawal syndrome. rofl2.gif

I did get home in just enough time for the cloud gods to show me mercy for 15 minutes or so but was still hazy. Was a race against the clock to get captures. Is about the nicest prom I've seen in my short Ha career. Now just to keep working on some terrible rookie processing.lol.gif

Good shots! let's hope the sun continues to show something interesting these days!

There is no choice but to take it easy, where I lived before I got to count 40 consecutive nights completely cloudy! bawling.gif
