Beautiful morning with OK seeing that degraded as the morning went on.  Got started later than usual after taking my son and granddaughter to the airport after a great weekend watching his movie short that was shown at the Cindependent Film Festival in Cincinnati, OH.  Fun to see him on stage answering questions about the film. 

A bit of activity on the NE Limb featuring a nice bit of a blast after a small flare near the end of the 1 hr 10 minute animation (I should have gone a little longer to show the entire reabsorption of the plasma) then moved to a very faint prom on the Western Limb that proved to be a bit of coronal streaming back to the surface.  One hour in real time on that animation.

Very nice Warren, and cool to hear about the film. I got out yesterday as well, the last day of my week off. Working on similar animation of the faint prom on the western limb and some stills. Out shooting again today, luckily this week I can do some of my work from home, as long as I don't get called in. Looks like some nice activity forming between 3451 and the limb, I've honed in there for todays animation.

Thanks Stevie!  Looking forward to seeing your animations.  Seeing really went down hill during the captured of that faint prom so really interested to see what you caught!  This morning my timing was pretty good capturing frames 1 minute after the peak of the M1.9 flare at 12:46 UTC and the subsequent surge following it.  Excited to see how that one comes out.

Hope you got it! I noticed that flare when I was doing my usual prep, but I had already missed it. Hopefully there was some interesting activity still afterwards.

 

Bad news for me. I am not sure what happened, but over half the frames from yesterdays session got corrupted transferring from capture pc to main pc this morning, clearing space for todays session. They all show 0kB! And they were fully processed and aligned, just had to save as gif. Spent like 8hrs with the pc chugging yesterday stacking almost 3 hrs worth. Darn!  Well, I still have about 1 hr worth that seems to be fine, I'll get to uploading it sometime today. Also lost the photosphere imagery I took, first time in a long time for that. Pretty sure I dumped the trash bin as well, but I'll double check in a bit to see if anything was left recoverable.

Now that is a bummer!  And yes, I got it and it was a magnificent eruption!  Posting now.
