Probably this one, It was hard to Image proms here in Brisbane yesterday due to smoke haze from bushfires.

The top image is really nice. Recently I have been asking myself how far these proms extend into space? It is hard to judge without some kind of reference. If I were to use the Earth diameter as a reference. then 1% of the Suns diameter equals 1.1 Earth diameters, approximately. What is the height of the tallest prom in the top image? My guess would be 13000 - 17000 miles above the photosphere. What do you think? Thanks for sharing, cheers............
