Hello:



The sky this morning was surprisingly clear and seeing is

good. I check the Huge Eruptive Prominence if it is still visible and

whoa! It is still visible and quite large still! Although there are

signs that the prominence is starting to collapse back to the limb.

Maybe this prominence will be smaller tomorrow or gone in my

estimation.



AR 11057 Sunspot Group is at the edge of the NW limb

so its good bye! AR 11059 is still visible but uninteresting and might

be quite a bore if not for the nice dark filaments beside it. Aside

from the huge prominence in the NE limb, there is a possible active

region developing in the eastern limb near the huge prominence. Who

knows ? This might give us another good solar observation this week :)



I image also AR 11057 in white light as parting shot for this nice

sunspot group.
