Solar Prominence

There has been a substantial prominence visible with H-alpha telescopes on the eastern limb of the sun the past few days and it’s even larger today (Wednesday 10/21/2022). There is also a small sunspot, if you’re using a property filtered white light instrument.

Awesome prominence! I caught this sunspot a couple days ago. The spot looks like a little ghost :)
