The Film Festival room is literally a festival of films, solar films that is.
We have collected many exciting solar movies below. If you have time,
we encourage you to view them
all! If you are not sure your computer can view movies, visit our
Movie Test Page before you get started.
Solar Flares Observed by Yohkoh
