Watch: NASA captures massive eruption on the sun

An arching eruption on the sun was recorded by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory on June 18, 2015. The eruption ultimately grew into a substantial coronal mass ejection, or CME, a giant cloud of solar material.        

NASA records arching eruption on the sun

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory caught this image of an eruption on the side of the sun on June 18, 2015. The eruption ultimately escaped the sun, growing into a substantial coronal mass ejection, or CME — a giant cloud of solar material.        

The Sun Emitted a Lovely, Mid-Level Solar Flare Today

last weekGenres / Sci Fi : io9

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured an image of a mid-level solar flare that pealed at 4:16 EDT this morning. It comes from the sunspot group that’s been flaring up since it was spotted. Read more...

NASA captured an incredible event on the sun's surface on video

NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO) captured a solar prominence erupting from the sun's surface. The SDO used high-definition cameras to record the prominence on extreme ultraviolet wavelengths over a six-hour period.  Produced by Kevin Reilly. Video courtesy of NASA's Goddard Space Center.

This fantastical image comes courtesy of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. It depicts a brilliant array of “coronal loops,” magnetic fluxes which form around sunspots and extend into the solar atmosphere. Read more...

NASA observes ‘significant solar flare’ on the sun that thankfully missed Earth

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, has sent back pictures of a massive, X-class solar flare. The X-class flares are the strongest, and this one received an X2.7 rating. It wasn’t pointed at us, and there was no notable harm done, but there was a brief radio blackout (and a burst of static) over the Pacific Ocean…

This solar flare captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory is positively stunning

If you weren’t aware, NASA likes to keep a close eye on everything that’s happening in our solar system. Occasionally, the phenomena they observe are too incredible not to share, such as the huge solar flare that erupted from the surface...Show More Summary

NASA – New Photos Of Epic Solar Flare

NASA has released pictures and a video of the eruption of an epic solar flare. On Cinco de Mayo, the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory was watching the sun and caught epic images of the sun releasing a category X-2.7 solar flare. NASA classifies solar flares with a letter according to its size and strength. Show More Summary

Watch This Time Lapse Montage of the Sun’s Atmosphere Captured over Four Years

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft has been observing the sun since 2010 with the goal of understanding its influence on the Earth and near-Earth space. Using time lapse footage captured by the SDO’s Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) between 2011 and 2015, Michael König edited this cool video. This joins a previous video he created using [...]Show More Summary

Five Years of Staring Into the Sun

Do you have any idea how jaw-droppingly gorgeous our Sun is? I do. But then I’ve been keeping my eye on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which stares at the Sun 24 hours a day, week after week. It sends back very high-resolution...Show More Summary

NASA Captures Massive Solar Flare; May Amplify Northern Lights

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured photos and video of the first super-powerful sun flare of 2015. The X-class solar flare was directed at Earth, and while the Earth’s atmosphere protects us from the harmful radiation, it caused a strong radio blackout. More importantly for us photographers, though, such massive radiation bursts may lead to [...]Show More Summary
