This is the sunspot region AR 1429 that has generated several major solar storms recently. The video covers nine days (Mar. 4 - 12, 2011). Notice how the spot continually changes as its magnetic fields realign themselves. The images are white light images called intensitygrams captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
