NASA SDO Video: Dazzling Duo

Below is the most recent video from SDOmission2009:

The vdeo was posted on 02/11/2011. Here is the description of the video from the YouTube page:

"As SDO observed in extreme ultraviolet light, a pair of active regions put on quite a show over a three-day period (Feb. 7-10, 2011). The magnetic field lines above the regions produced fluttering arcs waving above them as well as a couple of flares. Another pair of smaller active regions emerges and trails behind the larger ones."

You can find more SDO videos at SDOmission2009.
