Solar Chromosphere Showing a Vertical Prominence with Delicate Fine Threads

| |

After a tough winter and spring with unstable weather finally the Summer has arrived with daily clear skies and sun, so I could finally make a solar session on June 28, 2023. The image features a nice chromosphere full of spicules visible in the limb with a vertical prominence showing delicate fine threads stuck in the strong magnetic fields. The image was captured at UT12h35 from Dark Sky® Alqueva territory, in Portugal. As we had a bit of dust from Canada, so I was not able to make a time lapse this time.

PT: Após um inverno rigoroso e primavera com clima instável, finalmente o verão chegou com céu limpo e sol todos os dias. A imagem é o resultado de uma sessão solar em 28 de junho de 2023. A imagem apresenta uma bonita cromosfera cheia de espículas visíveis no limbo com um proeminência vertical mostrando delicados fios finos presos pelos fortes campos magnéticos do Sol. A imagem foi captada às 12h35 (UT) a partir do território do Dark Sky® Alqueva, em Portugal. Como estavam visíveis algumas poeiras do Canadá, não foi possível fazer um time lapse desta vez.
