Our Sun May 21st 2010


Had a beautiful clear day for the most part here.I decided to bring the scope out and take some images of the sun in H-Alpha
The image below shows a long filament which is hot gas that is suspended by magnetic field which has a tendency to be rather unstable.Also shown to the lower left of the equator is a new sunspot that has yet to be designated a number by The Solar and Heliospheric observatory.

The sun throwing a tantrum as seen on the eastern and western limbs
