Thanks, fun to see solar get some attention there!
I really need to update my Astrobin. It's lacking all of this year's work. It takes so much data entry to put things on Astrobin. But I need to do it. My Flickr has everything up to date though.
I've always been fascinated with filaproms. They're my white whale in solar. Been chasing them for years and been working for years to build a system that could image them at the limb as best as I can within my means. Now that the max of cycle 25 is coming closer, we are getting more activity and more opportunity for big proms and filaments and of course potential for the merging of the two. This filament was so huge and it was great that it stayed because we all knew it would make for a really nice filaprom since it's so thick and dense. I don't know what it is about the look of a filament and prominence as two separate things but when you get to see them from the perspective of being both, you see prominences differently and you see filaments differently, as one thing from up to 3 perspectives (profile silhouette, birds eye view above or isometric, and both at the same time with sufficiently big ones as they are on the surface facing us and big enough to wrap around the limb and stick out into the corona from the transition space of the upper chromosphere. As a thought experiment its mind blowing to me. Anyhow, looking forward to the next big whopper filaprom as we approach the maximum!
