NASA Video: Three Years of the Sun in Three Minutes

last weekOdd : Neatorama

YouTube Link This video from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) shows three years of solar activity during solar maximum, the peak of the sun's activity during its normal, 11-year cycle. The clip is compiled from two images per day in the three-year span. Show More Summary

NASA's SDO spots a summer solar flare

The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 12:20 p.m. EDT on July 8, 2014, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured images of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot...Show More Summary

Solar Flare Eruptions Photo from NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory

2 months agoOdd : Neatorama

This is a composite image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory that shows a series of significant solar eruptions occurring over a three-day period in January, 2013. The photo has light wavelengths that are colored in red, green and blue to better outline the eruption dynamics. Show More Summary

Gorgeous GIF Captures the Sun Puffing Plasma

2 months agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Last year, a trio of sun-gazers — SOHO, STEREO and Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) — captured unusual eruptions of plasma being "puffed" from the sun's corona. The GIF comes from SDO and shows the jets that caused the puffs. Read more...

Puffing sun gives birth to reluctant eruption

A suite of Sun-gazing spacecraft, SOHO, STEREO and Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), have spotted an unusual series of eruptions in which a series of fast 'puffs' force the slow ejection of a massive burst of plasma from the Sun's corona.  The eruptions took place over a period of three days, starting on 17 January 2013.

SPACE: Nasa captures powerful X-class solar flares emitted by the sun. Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory observed the sun as a significant solar flare burst from its left side, peaking at 7.42 am EDT on 10 June. The sun then released a second X-class flare which peaked just over an hour later at 8.52am. The third, [...]

Sun Emits 3 Powerful X-Class Solar Flares in 2 Days

Starting on June 10, the sun emitted a series of powerful solar flares, known as "X-Class" flares, which were observed in brilliant colors by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. The flares erupted from the left side of the sun, twiceShow More Summary

NASA's SDO sees a summer solar flare

The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 7:42 a.m. EDT on June 10, 2014. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory – which typically observes the entire sun 24 hours a day -- captured images of the flare. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Show More Summary

NASA Observatory captures spectacular solar flare

NASA released a remarkable video from its Solar Dynamics Observatory of a flare erupting from the sun. The "graceful" eruption took place on April 2, 2014.

Square 'Hole' Spotted in Sun

There's a big square "hole" in the sun this week, according to NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. The dark spot in the sun's outer atmosphere is a phenomenon known as a "coronal hole," a gap in the magnetic field where solar wind rushes out, reports Space.com. In the hole, which...

NASA finds strange dark square hole in the Sun

4 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

The NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory has found a strange coronal hole in the Sun, "almost square in its shape." I don't know about you, but this square phenomenon freaks me out a bit. It looks like the Sun is some kind of fake LED disco ball and one panel is failing. Here's the video. Read more...

Mid-level solar flare erupts from the sun

The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 6:07 a.m. EDT on May 8, 2014, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, captured images of it. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot...Show More Summary

Visions of an Erupting Sun

4 months agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

A Solar Dynamics Observatory video of the recent flare is a deceptively-tranquil vision of colossal energy eruption. A massive X1.4 flare is part of the highest intensity of flares releasing huge amounts of energy, yet the filaments are weirdly soothing. Read more...

Instruments on NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded video of "prominence eruptions" blasting off the surface of the sun.

These Are The Most Devastating Twisters In The Solar System

4 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Researchers at NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) posted a short video on their Facebook page, showing a "small, hovering mass of twisted strands of plasma" as it "shifted back and forth before erupting into space." Read more.....

Sun emits a mid-level solar flare

The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 9:03 a.m. EDT on April 18, 2014, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured images of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot...Show More Summary

No, Coronal Cavities are Not Alien Spaceships Refeuling

5 months agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Back in 2012, the Solar Dynamic Observatory recorded one of our star's many burps, but this one was different. This one was symmetrical, and an optical illusion, and spawned stories of a alien ship four times the size of the Earth refuelling. Read more...

Watch this spectacular NASA video of a 'graceful' solar flare

Even a molten ball of gas has its moments of elegance. Last week, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory caught a solar flare on video, and the agency's description of the sun's swirling eruption as "graceful" isn't hyperbole. Scientists will study this tape to gain insight on what leads to solar flares, a phenomenon not entirely understood. Show More Summary
