Every now and then I see something that defies words (it happens!)...the video below of the Sun in hydrogen alpha was captured by Amateur Astronomer Michael Buxton of Ocean Beach Calilfornia (visit his website).  It takes a minute to load, so be patient and give it time....it represents a time lapse from 2108 - 2242 UT on April 11th, and is made from images taken at one minute intervals.
