TRACE ultraviolet movie of an active region as it rotates with the Sun over a period of 8 days. The loops in the active region are hot (around a million degrees) and highly dynamic. They light up at different times during the course of the movie.[Movie file 1mb or more - High quality]

A flare observed with TRACE, in the ultraviolet, on 14 th July (Bastille Day) 2000. An arcade of loops, which looks like a slinky, is observed during the flare.[Movie file 1mb or more - High quality]

An active region observed with TRACE. A large flare occurs during the movie near the centre of the frame. An arcade of loops can be seen as in the Bastille Day flare. This is a common observation during flares.[Movie file 1mb or more - High quality]

A four-part movie of a solar firefly. The top left movie shows the firefly in ultraviolet radiation as seen with TRACE. The top right frame shows the firefly in H-alpha. The bottom two frames show the temperature (left) and density (right) of the firefly. The temperature and density of the firefly increase as it evolves before it explodes.[Movie file 1mb or more - High quality]

Full-Sun SOHO-EIT ultraviolet movie. The small bright spots outside the active regions are the fireflies. Even though the fireflies are called X-ray bright points, they can also be observed in ultraviolet radiation.[Movie file 1mb or more - High quality]

YOHKOH movie of the X-ray Sun during 1994, showing the very hot plasma in the corona (over a million degrees). The rotation of the Sun and the variation in the number of active regions can be seen.[Movie file 1mb or more - High quality]
