Things were not bad ... until the clouds moved in. Still, despite the clear skies the Transparency was rated Poor by the Clear Skies Chart for the area.

I haven't been doing this for very long, but that prom up there at 1 o'clock is one of the longest I've seen. Hope someone caught it in an animation. Warren?

Very nice. Whole portions of the image if not the whole thing altogether look very 3D like. Thank you for sharing.

Very interesting disk, so much activity going on there.

 

I have been getting snow just up the mountain from me for the last 3 days.  Welcome precipitation but missed much activities on Sol.

Great shot!  I’ve been away from my gear closing our cottage with my siblings so no shots!  Weather didn’t look very cooperative back home anyway!
