Dear all,

 

as many of you, I have observed and sketched the sun with the active region AR2738 for some days already. I guess during the next one or two days, the region will move across the solar limb towards the backside of the sun. So at least for me, it might be the last sketch of it today. Apart from AR2738 there was one nice prominence on the limb, one on the disc and another brighter area on the disc.

 

Here's the sketch:

I saw the giant protuberance yesterday too and mad a comparison sketch an hour later.

 

I like your charcoal sketches very much.

Hi Tom, Hi Frank,

thanks a lot for the great feedback!

Hi Uwe,

that's a nice row of sketches showing the development of the prominence.

Thanks for sharing with us!

Clear skies
