Observing the Sun

by: Simon Tang

When i got into Astronomy, I always wonder how these amazing pictures that I would see and take would look over a period of time.

Since i've only been doing this for about 2 years, I would see little to no change since everything in space moves at a very slow rate relative to our perspective. Oddly enough, most things actually move at some alarming rate, but because of the vast distances and sizes of these objects, we perceive them as being "slow".

So what can we observe that moves/change quickly relative to us? Apart from the clouds in the sky which you can pretty much observe in real time, the other thing I could think of was our own Sun.

This video is a time lapse of 4 hours. Each section is made up of 42 frames over the course of the 4 hours.
