Last week, the sun produced 3 different solar storms, level G4 (severe), that all combined and crashed into Earth’s atmosphere. This geomagnetic storm had some negative consequences for electricity supplies, but the images captured both on land and from space are STUNNING. Check them out!
NASA Goddard – 5 Year Time-lapse of the Sun
The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) celebrates its 5th anniversary since it launched on February 11, 2010. This time-lapse video captures one frame every 8 hours starting when data became available in June 2010 and finishing February 8, 2015. The different colors represent the various wavelengths (sometimes blended, sometimes alone) in which SDO observes the sun.
