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...

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
