Giant Prominence

Once the Sun cleared the house roof, I got to work capturing the giant prominence on the Western limb. I haven't seen one this big since the giant corkscrew shaped prominence from September. The height of this one is at least six times the diameter of the Earth, with a length of around eighteen times the diameter of the Earth, or around 230,000Km - 24-02-17
