The sky this morning is partly cloudy and I had a hard time imaging. As i concentrated on AR2651 Sunspot Group development, there is a large hedgerow prominence just above the NE limb. As i was compositing, I saw a faint large ring just beside the limb where AR2651 is located and I turn up exposure and behold! A huge looped prominence with the shape of a half heart emerging from the limb! I had to readjust camera position so that I can squeeze both prominences as well as AR2651 Sunspot Group and a large dark filament in one frame as too many clouds for me to take the risk to individually image all.

Images taken using Daystar Quark Chromosphere Ha Filter on Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens set at 400mm f/5.6 . Seeing - 3/5.
