|Taken on 14-Apr-2003 20:21UTC (16:21 EDT). West is at the 4 o'clock position and South is at 7.
As AR0330 moves ever closer to the western limb, the associated filament structures reveal yet another dimension of their personalities, now flaring as prominences leaping into the darkeness (click here to compare yesterday's image).
Several other close-up images and full-disk images were gathered during this session, and will be processed as time permits.
Image Info: Canon EOS D60 digital SLR, Coronado Solarmax90/T-Max, and 30mm blocking filter attached to a Takahashi FS128 via T-mount TeleVue Powermates (4x for the above and other quadrant images, 2x for the full-disk) . Processing was done in Images Plus and final polishing in Adobe PhotoShop.
