The prominence on the sun two days ago was extremely active. This animation consists of 135 frames over a period of 2 hours and 15 minutes. The 135 frames were created by recording 135 videos, each one 8 seconds long, and then stacking 50% of each one. The videos were spaced 30 seconds apart.

This animation is running at 19 framers per second.

I believe I am finally finished with this one. Hooray!

This animation was also selected as a NASA APOD.
