Solar Imaging Session - December 31, 2013
After a tiring 2 night stargazing session in Caliraya, I was completely tired and use yesterday as a full resting day and didn't process anything at all. After getting enough rest and sleep, I wake up this morning with a fresh mind and body and saw the sky is clear. I quickly setup my scope and mounts asap as they were all dismantled from my Dec 28-29, 2013 imaging session. The Sun has a nice large AR11936 Sunspot Group that is looking good to end the 2013 year :) The group is large but not that complex in structure as it has lots of numerous moderate size umbral group inside its core. Departing AR11934 and AR11931 Sunspot Groups are on the edge of the western limb. In Ha wavelength, AR11936 Sunspot Group is nice as well to view as lots of small solar activities inside its core. There is also a nice large eruptive prominence visible in the SE limb. Overall, the Sun still show nice solar activity to end the year right. Advance Happy New Year to all!
