Hello everyone,

I believe that our US friends will be enjoying a great show in the next few hours: I attach here an image of a prom I took today: it is part of a great system of wide (and therefore not very evident while on the disk) filaments that is approching the limb just ahead of the 892.
We will be probably be sleeping when the best will go on :C so please guys, go out with your solar scope and image away wink so that tomorrow will be red with envy!

Here is an appetizer grin

Ciao all


PS this is a copy of a msg I posted also on the Solar System Forum: I thought that, in this particular case, a repetition would have been appreciated.

PPS I just noted that Spaceweather is talking about the same filament on today's page!
