On Monday I pointed a telescope at the sun for 3 hours to see how much things moved during that time. This is what 3 hours of movement on a solar prominence looks like.

  1. First of all, never point a telescope at the sun. Mine was specially built for this. If you try it, you’ll go blind. Seriously, don’t.

    Over the weekend I built a new solar telescope (this takes special gear, again, don’t try it unless you know what you’re doing) to enable me to get ultra-clear details of the solar surface. This is a time lapse created by shooting in one spot, it’s actually the prominence at the bottom from [this 230 megapixel image I shared recently](https://twitter.com/AJamesMcCarthy/status/1379461549119574016?s=20).

  2. That’s insane! What’s the size comparison to Earth? And are particles really moving at speeds measurable in “Earth’s per hour”?

    Great job!

  3. I once stared at the sun for over an hour.. my favorite planet is the sun because it’s like the king of planets.

  4. This is so beautiful. Thank you for this. Tho, sometimes it seems to go backwards. Did you make de gif backwards or is just how it goes?

  5. this may be a dumb question: how did it stayed still? the telescope goes moving pointing where you chose for the 3 hours?

  6. Looks like a tornado at the very bottom, the way it bounces and separates and reforms into a tube. A Fusion-fire tornado probably big enough to swallow several earths.

  7. Looking forward to doing this with my God Daughter, with her 8SE, and solar filter. It’s going to be epic, I got her a DSLR camera for Christmas already so once we get her used to the telescope I will point her to reddit to post her favourite pics.

  8. I’m staring at the sun, at shadows on the ripples on the surface of the sun, in a gif of a video you took, that I’m watching on my space age communication device and will be one of a thousand other people writing but you could very well even read it and write back. Bonkers.

  9. Fantastic capture! Keep them coming. It’s fascinating. I have a spotting scope with a solar filter, so the best I get is a huge orange ball with nowhere near the detail. I can see sunspots and that’s it.
