In one of her first letters to me , Marijke wrote:
Tonight , by the sound of the rain on the pond I was thinking about the past. 63 years ago I was reading a book from my mothers library about solar prominences. Then I didn't know that on the age of 72 years I would make my first images of these wonderfull prominences with my own coronograph.
Now Marijke is 76 years and still observing the wonderfull things she dream'd about in her childhood.
Please feel free to e-mail Marijke!

My intention is to show, that you needn't travel to the south of France (or elsewhere).

Of course with patience waiting for a clear sky. And photographing between the clouds!! A challenge!!
