The 61-minute time-lapse showed many events that occurred to the Sun as a part of its 10-year solar cycle and notable events, such as Sunquake, partial Solar Eclipse, Venus transition, 2012 CM (Coronal Mass Ejection), Hurricanes, and Solar Eclipse. This hypnotic composite video celebrates the tenth anniversary of the SDO probe and all its myriad achivements in understanding the solar variations that affect and transform life on Earth. Till the end of the decade, SDO had utilised total of 20 million GB of space to capture 435 million high resolution images of the Sun.
Taking to their website, the agency recently released a one-hour-long time-lapse video of the star over the last ten years, captured by an orbiting satellite.
USA space agency NASA has put out a time lapse video of the Sun squeezing a decade's time into one hour.
The video will help scientists understand more about the star closest to Earth and how it functions and influences the solar system.
NASA has released a stunning 10-year time-lapse video of the Sun, condensing a decade of activity into one hour.
If you're feeling like you could use something new and different to watch to take your mind off the state of the world, consider the Sun.
During this cycle, the Sun swings between so-called solar minimums and solar maximums that see more or fewer sunspots and solar flares.
While SDO has stored an unblinking eye pointed toward the solar, there have been a handful of times it skipped. The video also has background music titled Solar Observer. A longer blackout in 2016 was caused by a temporary issue with the AIA instrument that was successfully resolved after a week. Occasional frames where the Sun disappears entirely or appears off center represent periods during which the probe was forced to take a quick break from stargazing in order to re calibrate its delicate instruments.
