big prom (Blue Mountains)

Did some solar observing. Partly inspired by Bill's call. It was a good opportunity to train Elaine and Tony. We saw the big prom Bill had alerted us to. Lots of filaments and plages on the surface. Not much in terms of sunspots. Elaine was surprised by the dirt and dust in the eyepiece.

Bill got a good pic. Copyright 2014 © Bill Longo. Used with coercion. Visit Bill's web site or we'll blow up this star.
