Spacey Sunday: 5 Years a Star

Christine, here, taking a shot at Spacey Sunday! Jeremiah’s much better at this than I am, and provides more details than I do. However, I just couldn’t NOT share this wonderful video with you all.

If you haven’t seen it yet, here is NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory five-years-in-the-making video about our favorite star: the Sun. Keeps us alive, you know.

Over 200 million images in various wavelengths were compiled into a five-minute video. It depicts our sun as it bubbles and burns, hurling out fantastic flares as if giant firebenders were dancing on its surface. The video makes it seem both delicate and majestic. I hope you enjoy it.
