New active region – August30, 2016

A new very active region is coming into view today. It might give us some nice events like small flares, so it must be monitored.

Equipment: TS 115mm F/7 APO Refractor, Quark Chromosphere, Baader UV/IR cut filter, ASI 174MM camera. Seeing: 7/10.

To put things in perspective a bit, an image of today’s small eruption and Earth at the same scale:

And a “all-in-one” image, better showing the magnetic field lines detectable from the plasma moving along them:
