Description

A solar prominence can take many forms. Seen against the dark backdrop of space, a high-resolution view reveals incredibly fine detail and structure.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is a hedgerow prominence captured a couple of days ago, April 22, 2019. The name comes simply from the appearance of a garden hedge. In this case it looks fairly well manicured, too!

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I added the Earth as a scale reference in the corner so you can see how impressively massive this is.

Revision C moves the Earth scale next to the prominence to drive the point home.
