To celebrate the fifth anniversary of their Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) yesterday,NASA released this comprehensive time-lapse of our amazing sun. Although it spans 5 years of footage, with one frame captured every 8 hours, they condensed the spinning star dance into 3 minutes. According to NASA, “The different colors represent the various wavelengths (sometimes blended, sometimes alone) in which SDO observes the sun.” And the best part about this video is that you can stare at the sun, at a range you could never see it in real life, without even damaging your vision!
