Videos

Some videos on this page need 2Mbyte/s bandwidth, so if it does not play smooth enough, you may download them and view locally... Videos that use lower bandwidth (smaller or lower quality) are marked with green frame... (Some have "Small" version, if you do not intend to play them full-screen...)
The "colored" videos usually use lower band-width than the same yellow ones, not sure why...

High (minute) cadence version of first part, moves very slowly to appreciate detailed motions...

To understand, why it was connected in quadruple configuration, you can examine the magnetogram to see, that the northern part was on another hemisphere with opposite polarity orientation:

(601 MiB, 5:21, 1280x1024, img)
One of strongest regions evolved into a persistent filament that lasted over multiple rotations of the Sun, separating former negative and positive parts of the field... (Video shows 10 rotations of Carrington longitude 246, latitude -19 in 1-hour step, with four or more days overlap on sides)

This filament is included also in magnetogram video of Carrington longitude 246:
