Here is an active region between two sunspots that I imaged at a one-minute 
interval for a half hour between 11:20 and 11:50 this morning.  It's an 
animated GIF with 30 frames, so it takes a little while to load.

Each of the images is 300 stacked frames.  It was shot through a 70mm refractor 
equipped with a 60mm Hydrogen alpha filter.

For scale, the distance between the sunspots is in the neighborhood of 50,000 
miles, or six earth diameters.
