NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, has sent back pictures of a massive, X-class solar flare. The X-class flares are the strongest, and this one received an X2.7 rating. It wasn’t pointed at us, and there was no notable harm done, but there was a brief radio blackout (and a burst of static) over the Pacific Ocean…
If you weren’t aware, NASA likes to keep a close eye on everything that’s happening in our solar system. Occasionally, the phenomena they observe are too incredible not to share, such as the huge solar flare that erupted from the surface...Show More Summary
NASA has released pictures and a video of the eruption of an epic solar flare. On Cinco de Mayo, the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory was watching the sun and caught epic images of the sun releasing a category X-2.7 solar flare. NASA classifies solar flares with a letter according to its size and strength. Show More Summary
Groundbreaking images of the Sun give a first-ever detailed view of the interior structure of umbrae -- the dark patches in the center of sunspots -- revealing dynamic magnetic fields responsible for the plumes of plasma that emerge as bright dots interrupting their darkness.

Rare images from the Solar Dynamics Observatory Spacecraft. The post The Sun Like You’ve Never Seen it Before appeared first on The Good Men Project.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft has been observing the sun since 2010 with the goal of understanding its influence on the Earth and near-Earth space. Using time lapse footage captured by the SDO’s Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) between 2011 and 2015, Michael König edited this cool video. This joins a previous video he created using [...]Show More Summary
“SUN” is a short collection of time-lapse footage of the Sun’s atmosphere taken between 2011 and 2015 by the Solar Dynamics Observatory. The video was edited by Michael König and captures some impressive solar activity like solar flares and coronal mass ejections. The gorgeous footage is set to the song “Una” by Murcof. via Vimeo Staff Picks
Michael König's Sun is a spectacular time lapse compilation of our star from the Solar Dynamics Observatory from 2011 to 2015. It includes fantastic clips of solar activity, coronal rain, plasma eruptions, planet flybys, eclipses and more in jaw dropping clarity that you feel like it's alive, in an omnipotent God-like burning orb sort of way.

Do you have any idea how jaw-droppingly gorgeous our Sun is? I do. But then I’ve been keeping my eye on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which stares at the Sun 24 hours a day, week after week. It sends back very high-resolution...Show More Summary
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured photos and video of the first super-powerful sun flare of 2015. The X-class solar flare was directed at Earth, and while the Earth’s atmosphere protects us from the harmful radiation, it caused a strong radio blackout. More importantly for us photographers, though, such massive radiation bursts may lead to [...]Show More Summary
Well, this certainly puts the size of our planet in perspective. The sun unleashed an enormous solar flare on Wednesday at 12:22 p.m. EDT. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a remarkable photo of the flare -- being called the...Show More Summary

This is a timelapse released from NASA of the sun shot in various wavelengths to celebrate the five year anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory being in space (and taking all the pictures used for the videos). What's your favorite...Show More Summary
This photo, taken last week by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), shows a "filament" of cooler solar material hovering over the surface of the sun. The effect is of a huge crack across the sun, as if something is preparing to burst out. Read more...
NASA released the video to commemorate the Solar Dynamics Observatory's anniversary
To commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory’s (SDO) launch, NASA released a five-year timelapse of the sun — and trust us: It ain’t ugly.
