Sun in Ha – 23 April 2015

Today the sun threw out some fantastic suprises. A giant prominence on the NW limb and a prominence lift off with dozens of magnetic loops on the other side of the limb.

Seeing conditions were about the same as yesterday ( 2 / 10 ).

First, the Giant prominence, two pane panorama:
