6 years of sun observation in HD

Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) keeps a 24-hour eye on the entire disk of the sun, with a prime view of the graceful dance of solar material coursing through the sun’s atmosphere, the corona. The video shows six years – from Jan. 1, 2015, to Jan. 28, 2016, as one time-lapse sequence. Watch the magnetic fields in HD and get the explanations in the second part of the video – terrific work by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center!

After the rockets fired at nearly 5,000 feet, it made a a controlled vertical landing at a gentle 4.4 mph.” Wicked!
