03/31/2019 - A little more solar activity today

Submitted by thenakedastronomer

I was doing high-powered solar surface detail work today when, right before closing the observatory, I decided to move the telescope around the limb of the sun in the off chance a prominence had sprung up. Good thing I did, as you can see in this photo. Not a huge prominence, but pretty self-respectable so far as prominences go. :)

This photo was shot just before noon  on March 31, 2019 from Port Orchard, Washington.

Enjoy the sunshine!

Nice shot Jim, I sure hope the solar cycle changes soon. Come on sunspots! Your going to have to teach me how to do layers some day..
