WARNING: NEVER OBSERVE THE SUN WITH THE NAKED EYE OR THROUGH A TELESCOPE, CAMERA OR OTHER OPTICAL DEVICE UNLESS YOU HAVE A PROPER SOLAR FILTER AND KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
Huge solar prominence on the sun. Shot through some high altitude wispy clouds so it is not as detailed as I would like. Also wanted to put a barlow magnified lens on to zoom into the prominence but before I got a chance the clouds became much thicker.
I have included a scaled Earth to give you an idea just how big that prominence was.
