Hi all,



Over the past four years I've taken quite a few pictures of solar

prominences. I enjoy the tremendous variation in size and shape and

often succumb to the temptation to describe them by the earthly forms

they suggest. I've put together this survey of some of my favorites.

Each panel of the mosaic contains a link to the full image and other

observations.



There is one with my anthropomorphic descriptions:

and one waiting for you to supply titles:

It is interesting to note that the change in character and intensity

of the prominences during the progression towards solar minimum last

year.



Some warm data for a frigid Buffalo morning... I hope you enjoy them!



best wishes,



Alan

Alan, those are all really impressive images and so many of the names you've

given I saw instantly when I looked a second time - very cool!

Hi Scott,



2005 and 2006 images are mostly with a Zeiss APQ 130 - 2007 and 2008

with the A-P f5 Stowaway. A 90mm Coronado H-Alpha filter is used for

all. I think the equipment is credited in the copy underneath most of

the full sized images on my site.



best,

Alan
