Alberto Mayer took the following Solar Prominence images in February and sent them to us last week.

According to him,

It seems a "Ant-eater Buffalo" but for some other amateur astronomer it seems a Tasmanian Devil or a Koala or an elephant and its calf [...] It seems that we all are big smokers but we don't.

The equipments for his astrophotography are listed on the bottom of the picture.
