It is so amazing to see this images of the Sun!! In a way it is also so scary to see how this thing lives!!! For most people the sun is just a big ball of fire that gives us light, but watching this video, another image is created!! Just watch this and you will see!


NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO) has been studying the sun since 2010, generating about 1.5 terabytes of data every day. The goal of the mission is to understand how the Sun's powerful magnetic field is generated, maintained, and how the stored magnetic energy is converted into solar winds and other high-energy particles that influence the rest of the solar system, including Earth.


The video below shows a summary of the beautiful visuals that SDO has captured in the past 5 years!

Some people can tell what time it is by looking at the sun, but I have never been able to make out the numbers.

Mahhh!! Couldn't resist a dumb sun joke.

Thanks for uploading this fascinating vid.

No problem! It so amazing to see at what scale those solar flares happen, yet the average person has no idea of what is happening above him!!!

And hoe much do we even know about this great feature up in space?

Truly amazing thing. Positively godlike as it is responsible for maintaining much life here on Earth and possibly elsewhere in the vicinity. Im flagging both threads.

Fantastic. Nice vid, music was nice, but I like to watch without sound. I wonder what sound would be like as those flares unfolded. humbling to watch. makes you wonder like you used to when you were 5 yrs old staring up at the stars at night. humbling. makes one want to believe in the divine.

Reminds me of the terminator 2 scene [spoiler ahead] with the splashing around in the molten metal, only in this video, the scale is just obscenely vast compared!.

Pretty to watch and hard to imagine that its mostly just what we know as invisible gas on earth, compressed and fusing at incredible temperatures as well as the huge size, one of those smallest little arcs/wisps being far larger than our entire planet 0.o

It's like watching a great beast. Very cool, yet scary at the same time-especially those ejections.

It is.
Earth-Sun distance = 150 million kilometers
Sun radius = 695800 kilometers
Energy per square meter at Earth radius = 1.361 kwatt/square meter

Given that energy distribution doubles as the radius is halved and the ratio between the sun's radius and the earth/sun orbital radius is close to 218, that means the energy level doubles at least seven times is 1.361 x 218 = over 290 kilowatts/square meter!!! That's more intense than a full raging forest fire.

Wow what an Amazing video ! I recommend using full screen to watch it .


When I watch it i feel like the sun is transferring energy all around its self via solar flare . The flares arch enough to cool down in space thus causing a continual reaction . anyway just my crazy thoughts !

Nice video !!!!!!!
