2017 Eclipse Solar Prominences

A second image of the 2017 Solar eclipse from just south of Casper, Wyoming on August 21.  This image prominently shows prominences.  The one that streams out the furthest from the sun’s surface is about 35,000 miles.  The earth would easily fit within this distance!
