It marks a new year for my solar observation.

I didn't take any photograph today, but I did observe with my binoviewer, there seems to be 3 long filaments in the 1/3 part of the disc, but careful examination seems to reveal that they're actually ONE SINGLE crazily long one, it spans at least half of the solar disc

however, it tends to say it's not continuous, with more careful look, you can see in some parts they're really too thin to say it's connected.

there're some nice prominence at the edge, one is especially fun to look at!!! it looked like a inverted M attached to the solar limb, or shall I say it's a W!!!

841 is the single most attractive active region in my finder sized 40mm system.

Finally, I waited for sun to set on a remote building and it's really a great site in H-alpha!
