Object Name (H alpha Sun )

What a bad weather! Even the “day of the night” becomes the “day of the rain”, what a season.
But here around we are not too complaining. For my cloudy friends, I made a couple of solar sketches to prove that the sun still exist !
Both sketches and zooms are done in 30 minutes, at 15:30 UT Sept. 19th and the day after, same period, with my mini-Lunt35T and SWA 10mm EP.
The prominences that rises are damn pretty and clustered around the equator as it should be at the end of a solar cycle.

I wish you all a nice and dark sky !

  2. Michel,

    It is the same on this side of the Atlantic also.
    Pretty funny on proof the sun still exists.
    Stunning solar sketches.

  3. Really amazing Michel ! Yes the Sun is still alive, I saw it last weekend… 😉
    I had the chance to look at it with a Lunt, it was wonderful.
