Movie of the solar corona taken at soft x-ray wavelengths during the initial rise of activity cycle 23. By the end of the year new-cycle active regions, although still small, are appearing at solar latitudes of +/- 30 degrees. The general corona is heating up to temperatures for which the SXT is more sensitive.
