On Feb. 24, 2014, the sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 7:49 p.m. EST. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which keeps a constant watch on the sun, captured images of the event. These SDO images from 7:25 p.m......
An incredibly powerful X4.9-class solar flare erupted from the Sun on February 24, 2014, peaking right around 7:49 pm EST, according to NASA. The Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a number of images and some footage of the event. The...Show More Summary
Yesterday, the sun spewed out an X-class solar flare. It hit its angriest peak just before 8pm last night, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory—which is on sun watch 24/7—caught it on camera through six different wavelengths. Read more...
The largest solar flare of 2014 was unleashed by the Sun late yesterday evening. The huge X Class solar flare erupted from an active sunspot known as AR1990, according to NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. The agency’s spacecraft recorder captured the gigantic bursts of plasma from the coronal mass ejection – CME. Show More Summary
These images were taken yesterday at around 7:25 pm EST by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, a satellite circling the Sun. What you're looking at are the first moments of a massive solar flare — an explosive force more powerful than all the firepower humans have created, combined.
The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 7:49 p.m. EST on Feb. 24, 2014. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which keeps a constant watch on the sun, captured images of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation, appearing as giant flashes of light in the SDO images. Show More Summary
After the Rise comes the Dawn, apparently (although we would have put it the other way around – c'mon Ape-people, get your solar dynamics sorted!)....
An Oort cloud origin of the Halley-type cometsAuthors:Wang et alAbstract:The origin of the Halley-type comets (HTCs) is one of the last mysteries of the dynamical evolution of the Solar System. Prior investigation into their origin has focused on two source regions: the Oort cloud and the Scattered Disc. Show More Summary
Four years after its work began, and following last year’s three years in three minutes, Nasa have released another wondrous short video of a year of selected solar activity as viewed by the Solar Dynamics Observatory. Video via Nasa Goddard. Full-screen viewing recommended. Stunning. [Music: Stella Maris courtesy of Moby Gratis] The sun is always changing and NASA’s […]
Solar flare has increased significantly in the past several days due to titanic magnetism creating major clusters of sunspots. A video from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft gives viewers and up close and person look at the action unfolding on the Sun. Show More Summary
The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, beginning at 11:57 p.m. EST on Feb. 3, 2014, and peaking at midnight EST. NASA released images of the flare as captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.

The Sun and Moon decided to put on a show Thursday — but only for the lucky few with good seats, in space. In what is known as a lunar transit, the Moon passed between NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the Sun, giving the observatory...Show More Summary
I am a sucker for data visualization graphics, especially if the data being visualized is related to energy innovation. Needless to say, I was thrilled to discover a dynamic mapping of the geographic history of thin-film solar cell innovation developed by researchers at the University of Amsterdam. A photovoltaic cell consists of two or more layers [...]
SolarWorld is asking for U.S. regulators to close a massive loophole that allows Chinese solar manufacturers to evade tariffs put in place in 2012. If they're successful, it could change industry dynamics, but will it even matter for U.S. installers?
A titanic sunspot — about four times the size of Earth — has appeared on January 1, 2014. Called AR1944, it’s the largest sunspot in almost a decade. This image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory shows it compared to our planet. They are so large you can see them with your naked eye. More »
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded its first solar flares of 2014. Scientists say the flares were minor, but came from an active region that could produce more powerful storms.
All of the sectors on the following list show promise for growth and expansion in the upcoming year. Investors may want to take note of them as the market dynamics begin to play out. Solar Even though many solar stocks had massive gains in 2013 the solar bull market is still quite young. Show More Summary
This video of the sun based on data from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, shows the wide range of wavelengths — invisible to the naked eye — that the telescope can view. SDO converts the wavelengths into an image humans can see, and the light is colorized into a rainbow of colors. As the […]
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory has collected data to show what the surface of the sun looks like with a changing range of wavelengths that are invisible to the human eye.
