After few months of stop I'm here to publish a new animation about the evolution of the massive sunspot that appeared in the month of March 2012, the active region NOAA 1429 in the continuum wavelight, as seen by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
Unfotunately the satellite's instruments had few stop for maintenance so I had to join data from different sources to fill the gaps, but it was impossible to reach the same fluidity.

Howevr with this movies you can understand how he sunspot changed during 10 days; I used about 1000 images captured with time lapse of 10-15 minutes.

If you would like to see a particular big sunspot evolution, let me know the NOAA code and date, i will try to make it. :)
