Faint quiescent prominence along NW limb that has persisted for several days.  These images capture 24 and 25 May 2020 UT.  Lots of activity on the 24th, considerably less the morning of the 25th.  Seeing was fair to sporadically good both days, though transparency was poor due to hot weather haze.  Fascinating all the same!  4" ED refractor, Daystar ION 0.8A filter and DMK21/618 video.

Excellent shots Jim!  The activity was definitely lower today but there was an interesting prom next to this quiescent prom that showed quite a bit of activity this morning.
