© Deirdre Kelleghan   First solar observation of 2012. Yes the main Active Region that morning looked very detailed, but the hedge proms on the east limb were outstanding, and very busy indeed. A long rope like filament arched upward above the chromosphere, whipped round the limb becoming that very dramatic feature the filaprom.

  • East limb proms January 12th 2012 10:50 UT - 11:20UT
  • PST 40 / 8mm TVP eyepiece / 50X. Seeing good.
