NASA shares screaming-purple total solar eclipse from space - CNET

NASA delivers a colorful total solar eclipse as seen by the Solar Dynamics Observatory as the Earth blocks its view of the sun.

Eclipse season starts for NASA's SDO

On Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, saw a total solar eclipse in space when Earth crossed its view of the Sun. Also known as a transit, Earth's passage was brief, lasting from 2:10 a.m. to 2:41 a.m. EST and covering the entire face of the Sun.

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) On Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, saw a total solar eclipse in space when Earth crossed its view of the sun.

7-Year Solar Time-lapse

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has been capturing high-def images of our sun for more than 7 years. Here’s footage captured by two of their systems – the larger one showing visible light, the smaller one showing extreme UV light, and the line graph displays sunspot activity.

Image: SDO spies broad coronal hole

A broad hole in the corona was the sun's dominant feature November 7-9, 2017, as shown in this image from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. The hole is easily recognizable as the dark expanse across the top of the sun and extending down in each side.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory Spies a Strange 'Circle' on the Sun

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory came across a rare phenomenon this week when their spacecraft observed a dark filament encircling an active region (Oct. 29-31, 2017). Solar filaments are clouds of charged particles that float above the sun, tethered to it...        

Image: Solar Dynamics Observatory spies rare encircling filament

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory came across an oddity that the spacecraft has rarely observed before: a dark filament encircling an active region (Oct. 29-31, 2017). Solar filaments are clouds of charged particles that float above the sun, tethered to it by magnetic forces.

Image: NASA's SDO spots a lunar transit

On Oct. 19, 2017, the Moon photobombed NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, when it crossed the spacecraft's view of the Sun, treating us to these shadowy images. The lunar transit lasted about 45 minutes, between 3:41 and 4:25 p.m. Show More Summary

Why Has Our Sun Been Freaking Out So Much Lately?

The solar flare as seen by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory on September 10, 2017. (Image. NASA/SDO/Goddard) Since early last week, the Sun has belched out a steady stream of solar flares, including the most powerful burst recorded in the star's current 11-year cycle. Show More Summary

Two significant solar flares imaged by NASA's SDO

The sun emitted two significant solar flares on the morning of Sept. 6, 2017. The first peaked at 5:10 a.m. EDT and the second, larger flare, peaked at 8:02 a.m. EDT. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the sun constantly, captured images of both events. Show More Summary

NASA's SDO captures image of mid-level flare

The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 4:33 pm EDT on Sept. 4, 2017. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the sun constantly, captured an image of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful...Show More Summary

Incredible NASA Video Shows What the Total Solar Eclipse Looked Like From Space

The compilation includes views from the International Space Station, the Solar Dynamics Observatory and other spacecraft.

Image: NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory watches a sunspot

On July 5, 2017, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory watched an active region—an area of intense and complex magnetic fields—rotate into view on the Sun. The satellite continued to track the region as it grew and eventually rotated across the Sun and out of view on July 17.  

Two weeks in the life of a sunspot
