Sunspots timelapse list (check for periodic update new [Re: AstroPaolo]
      #5275822 - 06/17/12 03:45 PM Attachment (31 downloads)

I finally decided to publish tha animation about the birth of a sunspost. I admit I'm not totaly satisfied with it, however it is already a good point to start where can be seen the confrontation between the different wavelights. The work to build it was very long (like three animation plus some extras ) but it was a good experience and I could write a first workflow for possible future sunspots.

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.

The more time consuming is the start period with different tests to find a valid workflow with codec/effects, that take few days. Then for each wavelight animation I need atleast a couple of hours to collect and organize the data, an other couple hours to allign and follow the active region during the several days of capture and an hour to assemble and code the final video. This time i played/built few effects so I needed a couple of hours of extra time for the final step where i joined the different animations on several layers to find a good presentation.

Hi Everyone, I've changed the basic title of this thread to reflect that there will likely be periodic updates.

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.
