Small Dynamic Events on the Sun Captured by Hinode

November 27, 2012
The X-ray Telescope on the Japanese/NASA mission Hinode has been observing the full Sun, nearly continuously, for an extended period. In this movie significant small-scale dynamic events can be observed as well as the slow maturation of many active regions now visible on the solar disk. Hinode is joint JAXA/NASA mission to study the connections of the Sun's surface magnetism, primarily in and around sunspots. Marshall Space Flight Center manages the mission for NASA HQ. (JAXA/Hinode)
