From left to right: X-ray image of the 9-July 1996 flare (in GIF and TIFF formats); LASCO C3 image of the flare CME; and a seismic wave movie (mpeg format).
Quicktime versions of the movie: flare.mov (large),
and flare_sm.mov (small).
Images from the movie in GIF format.
All movie frames (in TIFF format), mov_0.tif, ..., mov_70.tif,
are available in single
mov1_tif.tar (56 Mb). These frames
are enhanced images of the
line-of-sight velocity on the solar surface. The first frame starts
at 9:00 UT, July 9, 1996, and the subsequent images are obtained
with 1-min cadence (a couple of frame were missing due to telemetry
problems). The total length of the movie is 70 min of the real time.
The flare starts around 9:12 (mov_12.tif) at the frame center (as a small
bubble), the seismic wave is first seeing in mov_27.tif. The seismic
wave is enhanced: filtered out, multiplied by a factor 4, and projected
Energy-magnitude relation for earth- and sunquakes in GIF format.
