  • Incredible 10-Year Time Lapse of Sun From NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory [Video]

"That's insane - nearly looks unreal", another wrote.

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. The shots were taken by the agency's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which as of June has been keeping a near uninterrupted vigil over our parent star for a decade from its perch high in geosynchronous Earth orbit. Now, we can enjoy it all for ourselves.

Titled "A Decade of Sun", the video was released on Wednesday. It shrinks ten years of Sun observations into just over one hour. That's right, it's 60 minutes in length video, so get some coffee and enjoy it.

The video, which is available in up to 4k resolution, is stunning. At that point, similarly as fast as they show up, the problem areas of movement appear to blur away, leaving the star looking a lot more quiet. It accomplishes these tasks by determining how the Sun's magnetic field is generated, and how this stored magnetic energy is converted and released into the heliosphere and geospace in the form of solar wind, energetic particles, and aberrations in the solar irradiance. The intensity of the utmost and calmness of the minimum can change, but the cycles themselves are pretty evident. "The images where the Sun is off-center were observed when SDO was calibrating its instruments", NASA explained.

Protesters resist as crews arrive at Seattle’s CHOP protest zone
Since June 8, scores of demonstrators have been stationed on several blocks around the Seattle Police Department's East Prescient. In the previous fatal shooting in the zone, a 19-year-old man was killed on June 20 and a 33-year-old man was wounded.

Even though the SDO kept an "unblinking eye" on the Sun, some moments was missed.

A longer blackout in 2016 was also caused by a temporary issue with the probe's AIA instrument.

The vigilant SDO has now been watching the Sun non-stop for over a full decade. With no it, we would not be in this article and it is a constant fixture in our every day life. His love of reporting is second only to his gaming addiction.
