The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) rings in its sixth year in space with a gorgeous, high res timelapse.
Six years ago, NASA launched its Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), a mission and accompanying module designed to monitor the sun in an attempt to better understand its electromagnetic behavior and the various phenomena it impacts. A major component of this was to capture consistent images using extreme ultraviolet imaging, a technic used due to its [...]Show More Summary
This is what the sun looks like over the course of a year. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the Sun and all of its fiery grace from January 1, 2015 to January 28, 2016. That beautiful burning orb looks unbelievable in this amount of detail. Read more...
Ir has been a couple of months since WUWT has checked in on the progress of solar cycle 24. Right now, the sun is in “cue ball” mode, with no large visible sunspots as seen below in the most recent Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) photo: Since there is a new analysis out at Pierre Gosselin’s…
A dark solar filament above the sun's surface became unstable and erupted on December 16-17, 2015, generating a cascade of magnetic arches. The arches of solar material appear to glow as they emit light in extreme ultraviolet wavelengths, highlighting the charged particles spinning along the sun's magnetic field lines.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captures stunning images of the solar surface.
For stunning, jaw-dropping images of the sun, it's hard to top NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.
x Daang, NASA. Using images of the sun taken in space, NASA constructed this super-detailed view of what the star looks like. In space, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO,… Tags: NASA, sun
NASA released a video of the sun created from still images taken by its space-based telescope, the Solar Dynamics Observatory. The labor intensive process takes 10 hours to make one minute of video.
The Solar Dynamics Observatory watches the sun 24/7
By viewing the sun in extreme ultraviolet light, the Solar Dynamics Observatory captures the star's invisible explosions. The post Watch the Sun Erupt in a Symphony of Solar Storms appeared first on WIRED.
NASA has released a half hour video of our Sun in breathtaking 4K detail. The video was created from images and data captured by the agency's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) as it continues its mission to observe solar activity andShow More Summary
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captures images of the sun in ten different wavelengths (each assigned a different color), and they've shared this 30 minute video of that footage "in unprecedented detail."
NASA has released 30 minutes of gorgeous 4K resolution video of solar activity across 10 wavelengths captured by its Solar Dynamics Observatory. The imagery is set to music by Lars Leonhard from his album Deep Venture.
NASA released 30 minutes of footage of the sun in 4K You thought your Blu-ray player at home was good? NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) released 30 minutes of what's called thermonuclear art (aka mind-blowing footage of the sun). Show More Summary
In a nod to our nation's recreational drug users, NASA has created this 30-minute ultra high-resolution look at our Sun, assembled from thousands of photographs taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, which snaps a 16-megapixel image of the Sun every few seconds. Duuuuuuuude... Tags: NASA Sun astronomy space video
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) in orbit keeps a constant vigil on the Sun to help us understand how solar variations impact life on Earth. Launched in 2010, the SDO is part of NASA's Living With a Star (LWS) Program. NASA just released this magnificent 4K video shot by the SDO of our star's nuclear fire. It's titled "Thermonuclear Art."
Here's a chance to see the sun without damaging your eyes. NASA has released a 30-minute, ultra-high definition 4K video of the sun called "Thermonuclear Art." The footage, which was taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) spacecraft,...Show More Summary
NASA treated us to a post-halloween surprise on Sunday with a new 30-minute video showcasing stunning shots of the sun taken in 4K quality. The sun footage below was taken from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), a spacecraft which launched back in 2010. Show More Summary
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory catches sight of an extremely long filament of solar material in the form of a long, dark tendril across the sun's surface.
