  • Haunting Images of the Sun

    For any of you that are into Astronomy, Cosmology, or any of the space sciences, I bring you some awesome video from the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

    Be sure to watch this in 1080HD and in full screen!



    I really wish they had put some sort of scale in the video, so that people could see just how enormous these features are.

    Wow... Is this Time lapse stuff or real time? I didn't realize there was so much going on there. I knew that you had the flares and such..but the Sun is like a cauldron of boiling water.. Crazy..

          I'm no expert, mind you, but I am pretty sure that it is mostly time lapse video. Considering that the sun rotates once every 27 days or so and that it is ~870,000 miles in diameter, the movies would be hours long if it were shown in real time.

                    We laughed, knowing that better men would come,
                    And greater wars; when each proud fighter brags
                    He wars on Death, for lives: not men, for flags.

                      Anyone see the movie Sunshine? Kinda reminds me of that.
