Happy Flag Day!  Out imaging and it appears as though there are two overlapping proms just above AR2833 on the NE Limb.  They are pretty bright as well.  It appears as the lower one is in front of the fainter upper one.  Interested to hear what others see.  It will be interesting to see if they are interacting at all.

 

Quick process

Very interesting! If you can real-time tune red/blue quickly you might be able to determine which is doing which as it could possibly be a large arch and not just two independent proms.

 

I'm living vicariously through others and GONG and SDO since Florida is one big storm puddle at the moment. frown.gif

 

Very best,

Alas my Tilt Tuner which I set and basically don't touch is under the Hinode Guider so maybe someone else viewing could confirm which is in front or is it one big arch.  The animation may reveal what is going on as well.

Nice image. Best I can do is watch gong in Florida. Our rainy season is starting.

I just deleted my previous reply.... Saw the disk this morning too and its none I've ever seen.. beautiful.... looks like two proms to me. thanks for bringing this up. I'm glad you've captured it.. I would have like to capture to if I didn't have any work today. Excelling capture as always Warren!

Nice catch! Watched briefly only WL today, so missed the prom(s). Ran animations on GONG with 2 minutes increments, and to me it seems it could be a dynamic arch according to parts of the sequences. A high resolution animation would be really welcome!

 

In your image the both parts are of similar heights, could also support it's a single arch.

Interesting, working on the animation now, will be interesting to see what it reveals.

Nice detailed image, Warren!  My skies were clouded over, but from your image it seems the fainter prom on the right disappears behind the limb while the one on the left seems just in front.  At least that is the impression I get from the image.

Nice capture there Warren. I have been a bit quiet of late, bronchitis etc but managed a few shots yesterday morning OZ time. So rather than start a new thread here is what I imaged 24hrs ago under below average seeing. Might help..

Thanks Peter, it does look like it was forming and arch there which is what it looks like in the animations I finished.
