Never Before Seen Images of the Sun! Thanks NASA

NASA has just celebrated 5 year anniversary of their “Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which provides incredibly detailed images of the whole sun 24 hours a day.”

The observatory captures images of beautiful explosions occurring on the sun; a sight that makes living in 21st century an even bigger privilege! The spectacular images really help shake up our perspective of our ever gorgeous universe.

“The imagery is an example of the kind of data that SDO provides to scientists. By watching the sun in different wavelengths – and therefore different temperatures – scientists can watch how material courses through the corona, which holds clues to what causes eruptions on the sun, what heats the sun’s atmosphere up to 1,000 times hotter than its surface, and why the sun’s magnetic fields are constantly on the move.”

SDO is NASA’s first Living with a Star Program and is quite crucial in helping us understand the relationship between the Sun and the Earth. Check out the video they have generously shared with the public; don’t forget to watch it in full HD (1080p) for the best possible experience.
