NASA SDO - Big Sunspot, Big Effects

This is the sunspot region AR 1429 that generated several major solar storms recently. The video covers nine days (March 4 - 12, 2012). Notice how the spot is almost always changing as its magnetic fields realign themselves. The images are white light images called intensity grams. Credit: NASA SDO

NASA SDO - X-class Solar Flares & Solar Tsunami, March 7, 2012

On March 7, 2012 just a few minutes after midnight UT time the active region (AR11429) unleashed two strong X-class flare. The first, X5.4-class, showed a very bright flare, the second right after, X1-class, hurled a second coronal mass ejection into Space. Also seen can be a wave going across the Sun at approx. 1,000,000 mph - also known as a Solar Tsunami. Here are various views of this events over a couple of hours, including some close-up views of the Sunspot 1429. Credit: NASA SDO & Dr. A. Kosovichev, HMI

NASA SDO - Returning Sunspot (AR1429)

The active region (AR 1429), the source of many strong flares and geomagnetic storms in the beginning of March 2012, has completed its journey around the Sun and is peaking over the Eastern limb of the Sun. But it is not nearly the behemoth it was four weeks ago. The view through the HMI telescope shows the movement and development of this sunspot in early March and shows how this region is returning the end of March. The AIA 171 angstrom view shows the coronal loops, arcs extending off the Sun where plasma moves along magnetic field lines. This video also includes a view of early and late March 2012 activities. As the saying goes - "A trip around the Sun can make you decay...".
