Our CGA continued his task of monitoring the sun for sunspot activity. The sunspot observed yesterday has now split into three smaller ones. One larger prominence was visible with the eye, but not with the Skyris camera. No flares or filaments were seen.
Photos were taken with the Skyris camera and the best image processed in Autostakkert, Registax, Photoshop, and PowerPoint to colorize and bring out contrast. The results are attached. The image labeled “prominence” is where the prominence was seen, but the camera did not pick up on it.
Objects Viewed: Sun
Problems Encountered: Skyris camera did not show the prominence that was visible with the eye, no matter how the image was processed.
