20090218 Sun with an interesting prominence

Seeing 3/10, transparency 1/10. It's cloudy basically, and I've to push the exposure to 0.3s with nearly maximum gain to pass through the cloud! I couldn't comment on the surface detail since it could hardly be seen during cloudy moments, but I notice a big and interesting prominence immediately during the moments with thinner cloud.
