Although it was foggy and cloudy there were some hints of the sun now and then, so I prepared my observatory for solar imaging. And waited. And waited ... And when that small gap came - just before the sun hit the trees - I imaged :o) Wow, what a huge prominence; I measured it at approx. 4.7 x 3.6 Earth !
