I watched and photographed it for hours while it pulsated into delicate large arcs, at one stage, I though it was going to detach but then the two sides of plasma meet again and formed another beautiful arc,
what an incredible display to witness!
This image is taken with a ZWO ASI 120 MC-S CCD camera with a 3x Barlow lens attached to a Lunt 80mm solar telescope.
The AVI movie file was imported into Registak6 for stacking, there was next to no processing, basically, this is the way it come down from the Sun, it was just awesome!!!
The other image is from NASA’s Solar Dynamic Observatory, which shows this amazing activity in extreme ultra violet light. Please go to there website to see more incredible images of our star, the Sun at:
