Highly accelerated movie of the rotating solar x-ray corona from October 1991 to December 2001. This video is intended to emphasize the coronal effects of an entire solar activity cycle. Note the annual "nodding" of the solar poles of +/- 7 degrees. The latitude drift toward the equator of active regions is very evident. The temperature of the hot coronal gasses depicted here are generally above 2 million degrees Kelvin.
