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
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’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
Well, this certainly puts the size of our planet in perspective. The sun unleashed an enormous solar flare on Wednesday at 12:22 p.m. EDT. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a remarkable photo of the flare -- being called the...Show More Summary
This puts everything in perspective. Here's an image of today's X2.2-class solar flare, along with the Earth for scale. Image via NASA/Solar Dynamics Observatory Read more...
Gorgeous video from NASA Goddard's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which recently marked a 5 year anniversary. Read the rest
As a nod to the fifth anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory's launch, NASA has created and released a stunning five-year time-lapse of the sun. The footage was captured by taking one frame every 8 hours from 2010 to 2015, with different colours representing different wavelengths.

This is a timelapse released from NASA of the sun shot in various wavelengths to celebrate the five year anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory being in space (and taking all the pictures used for the videos). What's your favorite...Show More Summary
This photo, taken last week by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), shows a "filament" of cooler solar material hovering over the surface of the sun. The effect is of a huge crack across the sun, as if something is preparing to burst out. Read more...
NASA released the video to commemorate the Solar Dynamics Observatory's anniversary
To commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory’s (SDO) launch, NASA released a five-year timelapse of the sun — and trust us: It ain’t ugly.
The sun is living a pretty interesting life out there. And NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) celebrated its five-year anniversary on Feb. 11th, which means they've treated us all to a five-year-spanning time-lapse of what the sun's been up to for those years. Predictably, it's pretty damn epic.
NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center has released a video composite of some of the imagery taken over the past five years by the Solar Dynamics Observatory. It's nothing short of breathtaking.
NASA is celebrating the five year anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory operated by the Goddard Space Flight Center with a video highlighting some of the most impressive solar activity it has observed in its time. February 11, 2015 marks five years in space for NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which provides incredibly detailed images of the […]
NASA‘s heliophysics division recently celebrated the five-year anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory with a time-lapse video that compresses five years of the Sun’s rotation into less than three minutes. The video also features the Sun as seen through a number of different wavelengths and combinations thereof. Show More Summary
To celebrate the fifth anniversary of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, NASA put out this video of all the coolest, jaw-dropping explosions that happened on our sun over the past five years. You basically watch the sun dance with shooting flares and solar loops. It’s unreal. More »
YouTube I've been getting swarmed by creationists and right wing science-deniers today on Twitter, so here's some amazing science to take away that nasty reactionary taste. 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...
On the fifth anniversary of NASA's launch of the Solar Dynamics Observatory, the agency released a video of the observatory's most spectacular images of the sun.
Timelapses have the ability to make reality seem like it's simultaneously sped up and slowed down. You might, ahem, say the result is "out of this world." To commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory's (SDO)...Show More Summary
