Title: Promtastic Monday
Post by: markt on August 15, 2011, 08:26:55 pm
Lots of nice things to see on the sun today - no spots, but plenty of filaments and proms.  Hopefully the proms will hang around...

Well done Mark, the proms may hang around but Iím sure the clouds will hang around for longer  :( should be clearing by the weekend though  ;D

Thanks Richard and Anton.  Yes, looks like the weather may well be improving by the weekend, I hope so we're due it!

Here's a close up pick of what has been recently designated AR1271 as it came over the limb...
