While I've seen and imaged many beautiful prominences over the last few years since getting my dedicated solar scope, I've always wanted to catch a large, graceful arching loop extending well out from the disk. Today it finally happened! When I checked the GONG website this morning this wasn't there, but it appeared first thing after the sun cleared the trees. By ten minutes later it was gone. I'm a pretty happy camper!
