AR11817 10 minutes of Fame

Another 10 minutes of fame for this active region, and again, alas no fireworks.  It does show some small scale crackles in the plage around the spot, and small, dark, rope like filaments flowing around the magnetic field lines.  I think my favourite is the dance of spicules on the solar limb.  This animation was made with the 100mm PST mod at 3200mm focal length with the DMK31 camera.
