JamesTyrwhitt-Drake – who made the color-enhanced time-lapse of Earth – made this 4K animation of the Sun from over 17,000 images taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory. The sound is based on the sun’s magnetic activity.
YouTube One of the most amazing videos I've seen this year is this absolutely stunning timelapse of the wildest frontier, the surface of our Sun, composed of images taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory. What you're looking at is actually a gigantic self-sustaining nuclear fusion reaction. The center of our solar...
An incredible 4K time-lapse video of the Sun was compiled by James Tyrwhitt-Drake from more than 17,000 images taken by the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory and Helioviewer.org. The video shows the massive and active sunspot AR 2192, the largest in 22 years, as the Sun rotates during the period of October 14th to 30th, 2014. via Alltop, […]
This is a time lapse of the surface of the Sun, constructed of more than 17,000 images taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory from Oct 14 to Oct 30, 2014. The bright area that starts on the far right is sunspot AR 12192, the largest...Show More Summary
OMG. Is it the end of the world? Is everyone we love and care about soon to be incinerated by a massive radioactive blast from the sun? Will my iPhone still work? This image, take by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, is actually a mid-level M-class flare, and one of several that have occurred in the same spot over the past few days. Show More Summary
The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 5:40 p.m. EST on Nov. 3, 2014. 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
An active region on the surface of the sun has been putting on quite the show for NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory On Sunday, the region erupted with an X2-class flare. X-class flares are the most intense category of solar flare; an...Show More Summary
Even the Sun is getting into the Halloween spirit this year. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) just captured these awesome images of solar activity that make it look like the Sun has decided to dress up as the solar system’s largest, creepiest jack-o’-lantern. The SDO has three instruments. Show More Summary
Is there anything cooler than images of our solar system? Especially ones of the actual Sol, or, our sun. No, there is not. This fantastically seasonal Halloween image was captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, which does nothing … Read more ›
Here's a photo of the Sun looking like a Jack O'Lantern taken by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory on October 8, 2014, a blend of two light wavelengths (171 and 193 angstrom.) Read more...
A giant filament has appeared on the surface of the sun — and NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has captured images of the long, dark formation.
Last week, a solar flare flashed on the surface of the sun, just as our star erupted with a massive amount of burning ejecta. The twin explosions, captured by a NASA satellite called the Solar Dynamics Observatory, make for a gorgeous and violent portrait of our sun. Read more...
An X1.6 class solar flare flashes in the middle of the sun on Sept. 10, 2014. These images were captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.
The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 1:48 p.m. EDT on Sept. 10, 2014. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured images of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground. Show More Summary
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured video of a solar storm, and radiation could be headed towards Earth
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
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
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
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...
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.
