active sunspot AR2665 started to light up and go crazy with activity!!!
There were also two very active prominences firing away on the eastern limb which were quite spectacular…
Images taken with a 80mm Lunt solar telescope and a ZWO ASI120MC-S with 2x Barlow lens attached, AVI video files imported into RegiStax6 for stacking and processed in PS CS4.
This is a composite image, one for the solar disc and one for the fainter prominences that were combined in PS.
NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory recorded the solar flare and the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) space weather map showed that I was right in the middle of this outburst in Australia.
