On a slow prominence day, the Sun had great activity on the surface. One of the most interesting features is seen just south of the center. An area where sunspots and filaments have come together, you will notice that a face with a rather evil smile appears to have emerged.

This image was captured on 4/5/2013 in Laurel, MD USA using the following:

Telescope - Lunt 60mm Hydrogen Alpha in the double stack configuration

Camera - The Imaging Source DMK-51

Processing - RegiStax 6 (3 images stacked0
