I saw this a couple of weeks ago, simply incredible to watch. What really amazed me was when the flux jets shoot out how fast the sun's gravity captures them and drags them back to the surface. Although the real time of the video covers about 22.5 hours this gives a clear understanding of the dynamics evolved.
