Dear observer, today I observed a real giant prob. The image at the left side is all of the sun at 13:20 h UT. At he right side you see the changes from hour to hour. I used my PST at 40x

Hello Uwe,

 

yes, indeed this has been a giant prominence. I've watched it today too. Your sketches catch it very well!

Clear skies!

Uwe,

 

Nice sequence!  That's a big one alright.  I had my PST out yesterday but not today (putting in the garden).  Sorry I missed it--thanks for the post.  smile.gif
