The X-ray Telescope on the Japanese/NASA mission Hinode has been
observing the full sun, nearly continuously, for an extended period. In
this movie significant small-scale dynamic events can be observed as
well as the slow maturation of many active regions now visible on the
solar disk. Hinode is joint JAXA/NASA mission to study the connections
of the Sun's surface magnetism, primarily in and around sunspots. NASA's
Marshall Space Flight Center manages the mission for NASA HQ.
