16_44_21_lapl5_ap5843waves cloudy.jpg Just a question.  A real quick edit of an image I got today.  It will take me the weekend to go thru everything and edit properly.  What is this I captured today?  Spikes coming out of it?  I do not have time to go thru everything or edit the attached picture properly at the moment.  It's a bad picture at the moment but what is this called?

According to Jenkins p81 (Observing the Sun: A Pocket Field Guide), that looks like a surge prom??

BTW: that is a great book for anybody looking for a good reference for solar.

Nice capture.

It looks like AR12817 going over the limb.

Dave's correct - it's a surge prominence... Nice capture by the way waytogo.gif

I watched this one progress from nothing but a small spike prom .

‘Looked to me to be flaring and the surge prom grew and the withered away.

‘The sun has been alive with activity the last few days and I’m really liking the seeing here in Florida compared to the Midwest.
