Compilation put together by Jamey Jenkins on the morphasis of AR0963. A rather neat observation is the rotation (from 7/10
to 7/13) of the leading westerly spot that you don’t always recognize from individual still photos. This rotation leads to twisting of the magnetic fields and
maybe an erution of a flare. The development of the light bridges in both the leading and following spots is also interesting. Note how the spots divide where
the bridges are located and then disipate .

Excellent work Howard, thanks for sharing an educational experience.
