Watch a Massive Sunspot Speed Across the Sun

Watch as an enormous and extremely energetic group of sunspots complete their trek across the face of the sun. Known as Active Region 1967 (AR1967), the sunspot complex is roughly 180,000 kilometers across, making it larger than the planet Jupiter. Another smaller group of sunspots can be seen rotating above it.
