It has been terribly cloudy for some time again and I've not been able to get in any observing time since the trip to Hancock in October.
Today the sun was out so I thought I'd at least get some solar observing in before it went away.
A brief session (15 minutes or so). The seeing was pretty soupy, but there were two very nice prominences on the rim.
One in particular held my attention for the duration of the session. It was not like the other one's I've seen. It looked like a giant mushroom many times the size of the Earth. As I watched it one of the sides of the mushroom looked like it had an explosion within it and started to rise to the point where the shape was more like a spade then a mushroom. Very awesome to watch.
I wish that I could take better pictures of the sun and particularly take video footage to timelapse.
That's all for now. It looks like tonight will be pretty clear, but of course, the moon is nearly full.
