Two days earlier, sunspot AR1692 had produced a M1-class solar flare that resulted in the CME that hit Earth. This time lapse shows what happened during four hours over Östersund in Sweden, between 19:20 and 23:35 UT. The time lapse consists of 2464 raw images for a total data amount of 30Gb. The photo of the Sun is a hydrogen alpha mosaic made from 10 images that was captured on March 16. Total of 10 Gb data. So all in all this movie contains over 40Gb of data.
