Mirko,
Thanks for the Heads up....
The Gong data seems to be stuck on the 19th March.
Total cloud and drizzle down here.

More proms today, this time on the Eastern side. A quick shot to illustrate...

Mirko,
Thanks for that, clearly shows the activity.

Hi Ken yes it was good to get out to do some solar. Put the ASI120 on the 35 Lunt as an afterthought, worked OK despite the small aperture and average seeing. My turn to be under cloud today however.

Sorry to hijack the thread but news on Spaceweather. com is that a new sunspot is rotating into view over the NE limb. Wonder if it associated with the CME on the farside last week.

Yeah....
There seems to be something building up on the Eastern limb....
Hopefully the weather will allow us to image the action.

Eastern side is looking great right now. Hints of a double loop prom appear to be forming, small filaments on the disk and an obvious active region further north (?), and some action on the opposite side as well. The full disk view is starting to resemble something interesing again. Nice!


Will try another picture later, lock-down child duties are preventing that right now...

Definitely lots going on in White light, CaK and Ha.
New named AR 2759 shows visible spots and faculae in WL
The two proms visible are pretty bright!
Images to follow.

No chance of any imaging today (2/4/20) - total cloud and 15mm rain earlier...
I hope others have the opportunity to see AR 2759 and proms.

Just had a look - Eastern proms continuing, western side has settled down a bit. The bright prominence that was there has become fainter.

Mirko,
Thanks!
Still 100% cloud cover here...
GONG shows the brighter prom in the SE.

Hi Ken, the smaller one is at 10 o'clock in the Gong image. Easily visible through Ha scope. The AR is lost in seeing today though. And I've just spotted another prom about 90 round the limb in the other direction from the bigger one.

Yesterday's bright SE prom now appears to have moved into the disk and formed a filament (a short fat one). meanwhile there is now a loop prom visible almost directly opposite. Seeing still bad here though.
