Sun Fun ('.')

Postby paulc » Wed Jul 14, 2010 10:13 am

Sun at last soak it up! The large facula looks even bigger than before, I can see two Sunspots using the pst and solar film, there may be another one. A large filament is within the facula. A smaller facula is close to the North East limb with two filaments inside it and two nearby. On the adjacent limb is a long thin prominence. Three broad filaments are found near the North West limb and a group of prominences on the limb, they appear linked.

Not easy to sketch today, the Sun kept hiding behind clouds so no guarantee I got all of the interesting action. The large facula looks even larger with a distinct Sunspot as before and a second one I think. Through solar film I could see a third, but not in the pst, but then the clouds were a nuisance, now it's raining! Two spread filaments are visible near the North East limb and two thinner ones near the North West limb. Small prominences are on the North East and South West limbs and a larger one on the North West limb accompanied by a thin one. Ah, the Sun's out again!

Better late than never they say. Very active around the limb with prominences. There are groups of three large ones in the North West, South West and South East. The large facula is still going strong in the North West quarter with two Sunspots I can make out in the detuned pst. Various spread filaments are located towards and in the North East quarter. A group of three are in the South West quarter.

Well there I was thinking 00007 has the Sun on tap and the only thing I could get on tap was the glass fo beer in my hand, when the Sun came out at 6.30pm. So if my sketch looks a little rougher than usual you know why. I only had a short burst of the Sun so I have not got it all, but here goes. There are groups of large prominences on the limbs in the North West, South East and due East. There are small prominences along the North East limb. There are two faculae near the limb in the South East. Filaments are visible grouped in the North West quarter and towards the North East quarter. See 00007's superb images for the detail.

Various groups of prominences around the limb again with large examples, in the North West, South West and East. The South West group is very interesting you can see the facula and the prominences rising just short of the limb giving a 3-D effect. A long large facula is in the North West with long filaments inside. A facula is also visible with the Eastern prominences. Cannot see any Sunspots today.

Managed to catch a glimpse of the Sun this dinnertime and was surprised to find a large facula near the Southern limb with four Sunspots. One large one two medium and one small. I spotted a large prominence on the Eastern limb, but that's all I observed before the Sun disappeared behind the clouds. Will try later if it clears up. Not a good week for Sun worshippers.
Well it came out again. There are four groups of prominences around the Limb and one loner. Within the disc are two double spread filaments and again one loner.

A rather 'misty' Sun today with clouds drifting across it. The large facula is still there with at least three of the spots clearly visible. A second smaller facula is present to the West of the main one. The same large spread filament pair are towards the Eastern limb. Prominences are visible along the North East, North West and South West limbs, the largest in the North East.

Wow sunshine! A massive broadened filament area in the North East quarter along with a smaller one. A large facula near to the Western limb with two sunspots, the larger one showing distinct penumbra. A nice facula on the South Eastern limb with prominences rising out of it. A large prominence on the Eastern limb with a smaller one just a little further North. Close to the Northern limb is another prominence.

This has taken a while to compile between clouds. The large facula is still with us in the West containing five sunspots of which penumbra is discernable around three of them, two are large. The broad filaments in the East are still apparent. At 2pm on the South East limb was an enormously long thin prominence. A smaller prominence is also visible along the upper South East limb, three more along the North East limb and one more on the North West limb accompanied by a facula. I don't think I got it all either.

Massive sunspot and facula near the Eastern limb with a filament trailing from it. Above it is a larger broadened filament and higher still another very long broadened filamentary structure spans the Northern hemisphere. Five prominences are grouped along the North Eastern limb and three along the South Eastern limb. Have not been able to check the detail of the sunspot structure using the solar film scope, the Sun has disappeared so that's all for now.
