U.S. space agency NASA has put out a time lapse video of the Sun squeezing a decade's time into one hour. With the help of these instruments, the solar probe captures an image of the Sun every 0.75 seconds with the AIA on its own capturing an image every 12 seconds at 10 different wavelengths of light.
Till now, the SDO has observed the Sun for over 10 years non-stop, gathering 425 million high-resolution images and collecting 20 million gigabytes of data.
SDO is equipped with three instruments, the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA), EUV Variability Experiment (EVE) and the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI). Since launching in February 2010, the NASA probe has documented the Sun with daily high-resolution photography.
In the upcoming years, SDO and other NASA missions will continue to watch the Sun, providing further insights about "our place in space" and information to keep astronauts and assets safe, added NASA.
NASA said: "This 10-year time-lapse showcases photos taken at a wavelength of 17.1 nanometers, which is an extreme ultraviolet wavelength that shows the Sun's outermost atmospheric layer - the corona". It condenses those 10 years into just 61 minutes.
During that decade, the sun undergoes a sea change, slowly bubbling with enormous magnetic ripples known as sunspots, which peaked around 2014 before fading away again.
A number of particularly noteworthy solar events that are part of the Sun's 11-year solar cycle are captured in the video, including eruptions, flares, explosions, prominences, etc.
Titled "A Decade of Sun", the video was released on Wednesday.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has released a 10-year timelapse of the Sun.
The video also has a dark spot when there was a week-long issue with the camera in 2016. At some moments in the video the sun moves off centre, this is due to the SDO calibrating its instruments.
