Some interesting wavelengths they can see, makes H alpha almost boring.

The SDO site is wonderful , and those very nice people at NASA/SDO make the data available to one and all .

http://sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/data/

The data online goes back around 6 months in various formats from 512x512 to 4096x4096 jpgs to 48hr movies , one of the best resources out there.

Steve.
