NASA | SDO: Year 5

In honor of SDO’s fifth anniversary, NASA has released a video showcasing highlights from the last five years of sun watching. Watch the movie to see giant clouds of solar material hurled out into space, the dance of giant loops hovering in the corona, and huge sunspots growing and shrinking on the sun’s surface.


“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” ~Carl Sagan.

The footage in this little film was captured by the hardworking men and women at NASA and The European Space Agency with the Cassini Imaging Science System.

Now if we’d only get to see ALL of the footage, that would be truly amazing.
