Super Solar Filament


Object Name : Sun
Location : Granada (Spain)

Media: Graphite pencil, white paper.
Equipment: Coronado PST and Baader Hyperion 13mm, azimut manual mount.

SUPER SOLAR FILAMENT: It is, arguably, the second biggest thing in the solar system. A filament of magnetism almost 1,000,000 km long is stretching across the face of the sun. Only the sun itself is bigger. Stretched out, the line would fit 67 Earths!
