The sun on Fathers Day was crawling with beautiful prominences. This gossamer network of hydrogen plasma was dim and delicate in the eyepiece of my telescope. More prominences here.

It extends more than 100,000 miles above the surface of the sun! Do you see a coyote? (with thanks to Warner Bros. and Marj Christen!)
