Weather Headlines

For over 10 years, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has watched the sun, taking a whopping 425 million high-resolution images every 0.75 seconds in its orbit around Earth.

In a video released on NASA’s website on Friday (June 24), the 10-year time-lapse condensed into 61 minutes shows the outermost part of the sun’s atmosphere, called the solar corona, that gives rise to solar wind – the hot, energized, charged particles that stream outward from the sun and fill the solar system.
