YouTube link. Brought to you by NASA:The Solar Dynamics Observatory obtained an uninterrupted vista recording not only in optical light but also in bands of ultraviolet light. Featured here is a composite movie of the crossing set to music.
NASA‘s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the planet Mercury’s May 9, 2016 transit between the Earth and Sun. The transit occurred between approximately 7:12 a.m. and 2:42 p.m. EDT, and the video shows the event across a number of different wavelengths. Mercury passes between the Earth and Sun like this about 13 times per century. Host […]
Physicists at NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a time-lapse video using two instruments to filter the image of the sun and its rays as Mercury passed by it on Monday.
Forget Instagram: The Solar Dynamics Observatory has all the best camera filters.
About 13 times per century, the planets align in the heavens and the Earth can watch Mercury crossing the face of the Sun. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory was watching too and captured time lapse videos from several angles using various instruments measuring magnetism, visible light, and UV. Show More Summary
If you tried to to watch Mercury crossing in front of the Sun yesterday , chances are you didn’t get as good a view as NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. Mercifully, the space agency has put together a stunning time lapse so you can watch the spectacle again. Read more...
From Earth, the Sun generally just looks like a big bright ball, but there's a lot of activity up there that we don't notice with our puny human eyes—especially because it's not exactly wise to look directly at the Sun. The Solar Dynamics...Show More Summary
NASA‘s Solar Dynamic Observatory captured a stunning 4K view of the solar flare that occurred on April 17, 2016. The flare reportedly caused some radio blackouts according to NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center. On April 17, 2016, an active region on the sun’s right side released a mid-level solar flare, which can be seen in this movie […]
Earlier this month on April 17, NASA captured footage of an active region on the sun’s right side that released a mid-level solar flare. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory was responsible for catching the incredible occurrence that in turn caused moderate radio blackouts. These active regions — which are areas of intense magnetism — are quite frequently […]
More than 22,000 miles above Earth, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has been getting a full blackout each day.
The time-lapse video, captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft, shows the sun's entire 2015 -- and it's awesome. The footage shows the sun in extreme ultraviolet, a wavelength that human eyes normally cannot see. This...Show More Summary
A year of the sun’s life was captured in detail by ultra-high definition cameras at NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
“Grasso used data collected by the French Space Observatory to create an algorithm that translates real-time solar activity into a dynamic, constantly fluctuating color and light show.”
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center has released a stunning 4K resolution time lapse video of the Sun’s activity in 2015 taken from the Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO). The video covers the sixth year of the SDO mission during the period from January 1, 2015 to January 28, 2016 with a frame taken every two hours. The sun […]
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center has released a 4K resolution timelapse video of the Sun’s activity in 2015 taken from the Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO). The video covers the sixth year of the SDO mission during the period from January 1, 2015 to January 28, 2016 with a frame taken every two hours. The sun is always […]
This is a stunning 4K timelapse of the sun from January 1, 2015 to January 28, 2016. It was captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which orbits earth. Hopefully they make another timelapse this year so you can all see me whizzing...Show More Summary
NASA has released a stunning time-lapse video of our Sun constructed from images collected by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) over the course of its sixth year in space. The Ultra-HD quality video was recorded in the extreme ultraviolet...Show More Summary
The sun is always changing and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory is always watching. This video shows an entire year of the Sun, from Jan. 1, 2015, to Jan. 28, 2016, as one time-lapse sequence. Each frame represents 2 hours. YouTube link The Presurfer
