Sunspot AR2699 is now making itself known on the western limb of the Sun along with a couple of other prominences.

I’m not sure which one threw off the plasma out into space, but it looked like a big splash of hot material jetting away from the limb as seen in the eyepiece of the solar telescope…I was so happy to capture it :-)

These prominences were hard to capture as they were very faint and I had some light cloud in the sky, so I’ve used another colour to highlight the prominences as seen around the Sun.

Images taken with a Lunt 60mm solar telescope and a Canon 700D camera with a 2x (full disc) and 3x (close up) barlow lenses attached. There were two sets of images taken, one for the disc and one for the faint prominences, both sets of images were then stacked in RegiStax6, then combined and processed in PS CS4.
