Details:
They're still there: the largest prominence and the largest filament I've ever seen. Today, during lunch break, I made my second pastel sketch of this beautiful couple through my 70mm h-alpha telescope. Time was a bit short, so sadly I couldn't draw every detail on the Sun's disk, so I mainly focused on the filament and the prominence. It took about an hour to completely finish the sketch (between 11.45 - 12.30 UT). Later at home, I colorized the originally b&w sketch digitally and made a larger cut-out of the prominence.
