Solar Flare Up!

Gary Palmer of Solar Minimum(1) shares his animation (hi-res version(2)/5mb) of recent solar flares, using 10 frames captured over a four-hour period. "If you look closely you'll notice the sunspot is moving; this is due to the subtle rotation of the Sun," he writes.
"The recent activity on our sun has been very exciting. Just in the past few days there have been 2 X, 4 M, and 27 C Class flares which have predominately come from active region 930," he added. For more news on solar activity, visit spaceweather.com(3).
