A stunning image of the Sun in ultraviolet light, shown in a red hue as taken by the orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
The timelapse of the Sun in the ultraviolet 304 ångström wavelength, composed of more than 17,000 images, 72 GB of data produced by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
Sun’s Solar active region AR2192 produced a whopping six energetic X-class flares at the end of October, the largest recorded sunspot group of the last 24 years.
Using a combination of two images from the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), astrophotographer Rick Ellis from Toronto, Canada, created this work of art Sun by using a series of photoshop filters and effects. Image © Rick Ellis
The moon crossed between NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the sun, a phenomenon called a lunar transit.
An unusual series of impressive eruptions spotted by a suite of NASA’s sun-gazing spacecraft, in which a series of fast puffs forced the slow ejection of a massive burst of solar material from the sun’s atmosphere. Image © Alzate/SDO
An enormous stream of plasma burst out from the Sun, but since it lacked enough force to break away, most of it fell back into the sun. Watch the video…
This sequence displays the Sun rotating, made by NASA/Solar Dynamics Observatory – SDO images during the month of January, 2014. Watch the video…
The sun emitted a significant solar flare, on Feb. 24, 2014, peaking at 7:49 p.m. EST. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), captured images of the event, in different wavelengths of light. Image © NASA/SDO
On Jan. 30, 2014, beginning at 8:31 a.m EST, the moon moved between NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, and the sun, giving the observatory a view of a partial solar eclipse from space. Take a look at the video…
