Persona Ecliptic
California, on Sep 8, 2003

The most interesting part of the pic taken near Los Angeles today was what appears to be an atmosphere around the 3 o’clock anomaly. You have to zoom in with graphics software to see it. If this weather balloon gets any closer I'll use more camera pixels and look for cities!
Here the crisp White Persona, often seen in a color complement to red, is seenalong the Ecliptic where Leo the Lion touches the Ecliptic. Note this is not a flare, as the flares form along a straight line to the center of the Sun. Another persona, showing more the the dust cloud and reminscent of the incoming presentations from China, is at the 3 o'clock position.
