An energetic active region spewed forth dozens of outbursts during just a 36-hour (Dec. 29-30, 2011) period as viewed in extreme ultraviolet light. The largest solar storm was a medium-sized flare and coronal mass ejection, each indicated by a signature brightest white flash (about half way through the video clip and shown in the still) followed immediately by a darker spout of plasma. Magnetic forces were violently pulling against each other, creating the frenetic activity. By pulling an image every two minutes, the level of detail we can observe is amazing
