This is a 4 pane mosaic of a really nice prominence and active region.
I’ve added in an “Earth to Scale” image to show the huge size of the prominence. I find it amazing to watch these in real time as they change from minute to minute. It’s really awe-inspiring to see millions of tonnes of matter moving at such a rate. The scale that stars work on is amazing!
