This fascinating video features the most memorable moments of solar activity of the past five years.
These amazing images were recorded and are courtesy of the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). Now enjoy watching these ejections of solar material into space and eruptions of unstable filaments in the solar atmosphere. Awesome!
As described in their video:
[quote_box_center]The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) celebrates its 5th anniversary since it launched on February 11, 2010. This time-lapse video captures one frame every 8 hours starting when data became available in June 2010 and finishing February 8, 2015. The different colors represent the various wavelengths (sometimes blended, sometimes alone) in which SDO observes the sun.[/quote_box_center]
