Usually the quiet Sun is just that. But one can sometimes find
seemingly unremarkable patches of quiet Sun to be surprisingly
variable. A time series of a small patch of quiet Sun (white box)
on 22-Aug-2008 containing a rather unimpressive bright point
displayed an impressive variety
of phenomena over 6 hours (see movie) including emergences, submergences,
loop motion and activation, brightenings/microflares, and flows.
