The first Sungazing event of 2015 was off to a cracking start in Sheffield Botanical Gardens. Although not completely clear skies, the cloud was broken enough to enjoy views through the Herschel Wedge (white light) and through the Hydrogen-Alpha and Calcium-K line filters. A few good prominences were visible and some minor sunspot activity with a couple of really good filaments across the surface which could only bee seen in the Hydrogen-Alpha. The Botanical Gardens is a great location for Sungazing. There are always people passing through, and there are plenty of nearby places to get an ice cream or a cuppa.
