Sunspots timelapse list (check for periodic update
Posted 13 May 2012 - 10:31 AM
I'm not allowed by the nature to personally photograph the sun for 24 hours on 24 so I used data from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory collecting all the photos they made at intervals of 10 minutes and I aligned and assembled to ensure that the camera is centered on the same active region by making the transformation more evident.
This first experiment was done on the NOAA 1459 that I photographed last month, and will be followed by the 1450 where can be seen the birth of the sunspot. Among the candidates there is certainly also the NOAA 1476 that I managed to shoot only once due to bad weather but that is giving the show. I hope you enjoy it and you will follow the next videos.
PS - In the month's data I downloaded the HMI camera that I followed has had a couple of moments of maintenance with a large hole of few hours, this is noted with a small jump in the animation, I hope the next will be exempt.

Same specs of the first one, about 10 days real time, with images at 10 minutes time-lapse. Unfortunately the YouTube compression is heavy, my original movies are perfect with no artifacts.
If you need the animations for didactic/informative purpose, let me know, I could give a better version.

I postponed the timelapse with different wavelights animations do to the lot more works I need for all the process.

I used the SDO data of the AIA and HMI teams to make the time-lapse of the active region NOAA 1460 during a period of about 6-7 days. I hope you will like it.
Below you can see a frame of the original movie, a little different from what you see on Youtube.
Youtube - Vimeo (better quality)
If you need the video at better quality for didactic/informative purpose, let me know, I will share on dropbox. If you don't have an account please make one with my referrer, atleast I gain few MB for the new videos.
