Solar Activity: 19 July

19 July 2015

19 July 2015

Attached is the image I took today. It isn’t the best capture, I was racing against the threat of cloud banks rolling in and almost missed the conical prominence that I had seen earlier. But I caught it! I stacked 100 images in Registrax and then adjusted level and colour in Photoshop. Take a look at the prominence, it is an impressive one. The other solar features are quite clear too. If the sun keeps this behavior up for a week or two you should all have some great public viewing at Hackett Park and Halfmoon Bay.
