Solar Imaging Session - April 15, 2012 (Huge Hedgerow Prominence and Dark Filaments!!!)

The sky this morning is fair and seeing is also ok. But I was very tired doing some solar filters last night thus I got to wake up late in the morning and had to catch up with the Sun before it gets obstructed by our roof :(

Wow! A huge hedgerow prominence is visible in the SW limb that eclipsed the beauty of the huge dark filament in the SW quadrant. The Sun is very active again and another new sunspot , AR11458 Sunspot Group is emerging from the SE limb this morning. AR11455 Sunspot Group is still the biggest sunspot group on the Sun's disk but is very quiet likewise the rest of the groups.
