Caption: This movie shows the solar extreme ultraviolet (EUV) spectrum measured by the SDO Extreme ultraviolet Variability Experiment, or EVE. Every peak, called an emission line, has a story to tell, and thanks to the new capability of EVE we are ready to see 100s of stories unfold during each solar storm. EVE measures this spectrum every 10 seconds - the same amount of time that the movie scrolled the EUV spectrum across the screen.
