Old plume at 6 o'clock

Very interesting. There is a very large, squat plume on the Sun right at 6 o'clock from my location 47-deg 38' N. I've been watching this over the last week morph from a mushroom to an anvil. Sometimes it dips close enough to the rim to loose its "stalk", but it is back to being an anvil again.

"Cat whiskers" are very evident at 11:30am and 1:40pm.

Ok, I'm getting sunburn on the right arm now!

What is the longest single disturbance you've monitored on the Sun?

Just a few thoughts:
