Cool that you nabbed remnants of that huge prom, I wish I could have at least seen it!

 

Very best,

Not that we EVER get clear skies here lately, but is there an alerting service for proms like surfers use for great waves?  Sometimes I'll sneak out for a Ha or WL peek, but since we are at minimum it is usually just a blank disk so I find myself not even taking the time to bundle up in cold weather gear & set up outside, and I'm not always able to load CN and check the solar forum.

Hiya Matt.  Alerting Service: I check GONG  http://halpha.nso.edu/

That shows the solar surface and proms viewed from around the world.

 

 

Nice that you caught that big one Rick!

Nice of you to say so Warren but as Marty said, I "nabbed remnants of that huge prom".

Alas, I was 'a dollar short and a day late'. frown.gif

It was a real challenge too, so detailed yet so faint against the background - almost lost in the noise.

This happens to me often and I wish I had a lower noise camera than the ZWO ASI 178MM.  It's not a cooled version but at -20C (-4F) here, it has exterior cooling! lol.gif

Well at least I didn't have to image through a 'window'. cool.gif

 

Best,

Rick

@RickV   Yes, thank you.  I have the site on my desktop but find I need to zoom in and study the images to see if there is activity.
