The above movie shows observations of a very peppy active region, 11967, taken on 2014 February 2. This region produced dozens of bright solar flares and hundreds
of microflares. Near the beginning of the movie, there is a bright flash with two spikes emanating away from it that looks a lot like lightening.
The flashy nature of this dataset may be due to the filter used to make these observations. Hinode XRT used the med-Be filter to observe this active region. The med-Be filter blocks cooler temperature
plasmas and so this movie shows the hotter portions of the active region loops. This super headed plasma doesn't exist for long and so it looks a lot like a flash of lighting.
