 Hydrogen Alpha Images:

Todays Sun features a huge ring shaped filament nearly in the center of the suns disk. This unusual feature of course is simply a prominence not on the limb of the sun, but superimposed on the disk and thus appears dark. This is the full disk shot, showing both the disk and limb proms in one image.
