Sun spots on the far side?

I wanted to see what sunspots are going to come around in the next few days. GONG seems a bit hard to navigate but I THOUGHT we had a spacecraft (like stereo) that gave us far-side images, I just can't find a link that is not old data. There are Seismic graphs but I thought we had visual / halpha? B...

Re: 3.5 hr time lapse of the large active region AR2993-4

I think the little mini version in the post is a bit small to see the detail. It is much easier on the forum to link the original from Astrobin and link it through to the forum. If you right click on your astrobin image, copy image address, then in the forum full editor click the 'image' icon on th...

Re: 4-hr Time-lapse, AR 2965 says goodbye with some Class II Eruptive Prominences, a Class I arch, and a tiny flair!

Four hours of high-resolution video at a 10-milliseconds exposure rate (about 120 Frames Per Second) resulted in 3.38 Terabytes of uncompressed video data. Processing this into a 126 Megabyte Time-Lapse took over 20 hours of computer time.

Re: Hydrogen-Alpha, Time-Lapse of Zirin Class 1 Quiescent Prominence with flame morphology

Wonderful animation Timothy, you really caught the different structural components of this complex prom. It is great to watch the plumes travel up in the lighter portion of the prom while the darker areas rain down back onto the surface! Thank you! Yes, every time I watch it I catch something new.
