This spectacular movie of the Sun was obtained by the XRT X-ray telescope on board the Hinode mission between January and April 2007. It shows the medium-term evolution of the dynamic corona of the Sun. The corona is a portion of the solar atmosphere that extends for million kilometres into space and is hotter than the Sun’s surface itself.
