Solar Spring

Solar Prominences
Solar Prominences
Sketch and Details by Jeff Young

As the sun is finally attaining some altitude above the trees on my horizon, I decided it was time to wake my Solarscope up from its winter hibernation. There was quite a bit of surface activity on view, but I had neglected to bring out my sketching materials for disk work. No matter, there was a nice prominence complex as well, and I had everything I needed for it.
