A CALCIUM PUFF. (FLOCCULI) Taken by apollo lasky on April 8, 2019 @ Naperville, IL
I made a tiny sequence , that spans just 3 minutes of time. A white poof can be seen rising to the left of the sunspot and this caught my attention. These are known as flocculi. There is alot of rising flocculus around this active region! It Does not take long to see these with a calcium filter!---80mm x 1200mm refractor -basler 1330-gm ccd.
