New NASA Footage Shows The Sun In Ultra-High Definition – And It’s Mind-Blowingly Awesome!

Honestly, I can watch this for hours!

You may already be aware that NASA has recently uploaded tons of Moon mission photos, possibly debunking conspiracy theorists for good. In case you haven’t seen the hi-res photos yet, we recommend you go check out the Project Apollo Archive.

Well, it seems the space organization isn’t done just yet as they pull another surprising trick up their sleeves.

Last November 1, NASA uploaded an awesome ultra-high definition video of the sun. The 30-minute footage was taken by Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) spacecraft and it’s absolutely glorious.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has been capturing stunning images of the sun since 2010.

SDO was first launched in 2010 and its task, as the name denotes, is to observe the sun 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So far, it has managed to capture images in ten wavelengths in different solar material temperature.

Now NASA has put the images together and released the stunning video on YouTube, giving us the chance to appreciate the celestial body’s beauty without ever damaging our eyes.

As the video description tells us:

“It’s always shining, always ablaze with light and energy. In the ubiquity of solar output, Earth swims in an endless tide of particles. Every time half of the Earth faces the Sun, we experience the brightness of daytime, the Sun’s energy and light driving weather, biology and more. But in space, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) keeps an eye on our nearest star 24/7. SDO captures images of the Sun in 10 different wavelengths, each of which helps highlight a different temperature of solar material. In this video we experience images of the Sun in unprecedented detail captured by SDO. Presented in ultra-high definition video (4K) the video presents the nuclear fire of our life-giving star in intimate detail, offering new perspective into our own relationships with grand forces of the solar system.”

The sun is such a beauty plus I love the fact that they added cool music from the ‘Deep Venture’ an album by German artist Lars Leonhard.

Awesome job, NASA guys. Keep exploring!
