Clouds mostly parted this morning and then totally cleared for this 3 hour animation.  The beginning is "flashy" from some departing high cirrus clouds burning off but some nice activity between the returning AR's 3691 and 3697.  There is one decent eruption out of AR3697 at the very end of the animation.  Clouds ended the animation and remained the rest of the day on and off.  The image has been rotated 90 degrees clockwise for viewing and I changed it to an MP4 since the GIF was nearly 400MB.  Lunt LS60T DS/Saturn-M SQR and Meade 2X shorty barlow.

Thanks Dave and Jeff!  I haven’t updated my tutorial in a while so maybe it’s time to record a new one, Jeff, I’m flattered!

Hi Warren,

 

another beautiful and interesting animation.waytogo.gif  It is currently not possible to realize such long periods for an animation at this location due to the volatility of the weather. I would be happy to manage 20 minutes!

Thanks Harald and David!  There is an interesting action just before that bit of eruption near the end that I might crop closer in and slow down the animation a bit.  Seems a filament almost gets sucked into a hole and then the eruption occurs, but I'll have to take a closer look.

That was the first thing I saw and had to watch a few more times to make sure it wasn’t playing backwards for some reason.

Perhaps it was a previous flare that was on its way back down when you started your animation?

Edit: watching again it looks like there’s a bit of curvature in it like it was part of an earlier loop that broke

There was another imager over on Solar Chat, Paul (banjo), that caught a high resolution animation of that area at the same time I did.  It is clear that it was part of a surge prom that basically reversed direction, got sucked down into the AR and then the explosion happened!

 

I really like that prom loop action you’ve captured! Well done!

Thanks!

 

wowee cool to watch

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it!
