Prominence Pair September 30, 2005Posted by jtintle in SOHO, Space Fotos, Sun.
Hi-res TIF image ( 1.1M)
This pair of images shows the same prominence that had hovered above the Sun for several days running taken by SOHO (left) and Jack Newton (right), a solar photographer nearly at about the same time on September 25, 2005. Of course they appear somewhat different since the SOHO image was taken in extreme ultraviolet light and the Newton image with a telescope using a Hydrogen-Alpha filter. So they are actually imaging different particles. Even so, the shape remains generally the same.
