Solar Imaging Session - April 2, 2013 ( 2 Huge Prominences & Large AR11711 Sunspot Group ! )
The sky this morning is clear and seeing condition is surprisingly very good. AR11711 Sunspot Group is getting a bit photogenic as it is turning a bit away from the Wilson Effect. There are 2 huge eruptive prominences that are visible on the Sun's limb. The northern eruptive prominence is getting even larger than yesterday and displays lots of filamentary structure as well as penumbral details. Another huge fainter ejection prominence can be seen on the eastern limb near AR11711 Sunspot Group. There is also a beautiful long twisted large dark filament that is also very photogenic and can be seen in the NW quadrant. I attempted to do white light high resolution on AR11711 Sunspot Group again but is frustrated once again by bad seeing :( I hope to get better image of this large group in the days to come.
