Solar Prominences – June 1, 2014

A large prominence on Sun’s SE limb 1st June 2014. Hard to imagine that these glowing clouds are cooler hydrogen gas surrounded by hotter transparent plasma. Sketched at the eyepiece with Derwent Watercolour pencils on black paper. SolarMax60 H-Alpha ‘scope 50-80X. Location UK.
