Default Chromosphere Solar Activity

On November 14, I am seeing the largest solar flare I have seen in years. It is over 100,000 miles high and over 100,000 miles wide. With my PST I am also seeing filaments several hundreds of thousands of miles long, and several faculae (white patches) on the surface, as well as quite a few sunspots. The sunspots look better with a glass filter on my newtonian, since that shows the photosphere. I will continue to watch the progress of the massive solar flare. It may become a coronal mass ejection. Sam Insana
