The epic video was captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory

HELLO! Magazine

See the sun in a whole new light with NASA's amazing decade-long time-lapse video of our closest star. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has been watching the sun non-stop for over 10 years. The SDO took 425 million high-resolution images every 0.75 seconds, amassing 20 million gigabytes of data; one photo from every hour was used to make the video, which dates from 2 June 2010 to 1 June 2020. The information captured has allowed the team to understand the workings of the sun even more, and how it influences the solar system, including "notable events like transiting planets and eruptions", says NASA. Watch the amazing video of the sun, below.
