Huge solar prominence

On the morning of this Saturday, February 25, I photographed our sun full of activity. Undoubtedly, several prominences stand out in this photograph. The one that can be seen in the southwestern limb is really huge, reaching a height of about 70,000 km and a width of 200,000 km. Another very interesting thing to mention is the filament that can be seen at the top right, associated with the AR3229 sunspot, this plasma structure exploded at 19:49 UTC.

To take this picture I used a Coronado Solarmax II 90mm telescope and a Player One Saturn-M SQR camera.
