Captured this afternoon, going by Gong, wasn't expecting much so this was a surprise, it was very faint. Best view was with tuner almost fully out(red shifted?). The brighter nodules at the bottom of the prom were brighter than the rest, and seemed to be raining down to the surface over the course of 10 to 15 minutes.

Lunt LS100THa and ASI174mm. Thanks for looking.

Wonderful capture!  This one appears like the type I have done animations of that appear to be raining back down onto the surface.  Conditions haven’t been favorable for me to do that with this one so can’t confirm that but I think your observations support that.

I got a 90mm Solarmax a few weeks ago and yesterday's look was by far the best. Out of all of the postings today, this is nearest to what I saw at the time... the same structure and some fine filament detail.
