Not much activity on the sun’s disk today. Just one sunpot.

Very large prominence more than made up for this. Visible for over 2 hours before the clouds got in the way.

Collage of four images taken on sunday. Images taken 10:21 (Top left), 11:35 (top right), 12:11 (bottom left) & 12:21 (bottom right).

Patially cloudy this morning, but enough breaks in the clouds, to take 30 second movies.

30 seconds at 1/11 second for prominences.
