    Default (Sun Ha East Limb)Wasn't gonna post this, but...



    ... a member saw it in my album and liked it. So, here goes.

    This is the East Limb of the sun yesterday around noon.

    Thanks for the peek.

    Thanks Bryan. That "mess" at the top is showing much more height this morning. I don't know if my transparency will support a close-up this morning, but I'm gonna give it a whirl in a couple of hours... once the sun gets above about 35 degrees here in Vegas.

    Here's what it looks like right now thru Big Bear's Solar Scope in California...
