NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) 30 days videos, compare the sun’s activity from periods of t 2.5 years, showing increased solar activity. Images shown were collected in 171 Angstrom wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light.
Areas of intense activity is shown as the brighter areas with electromagnetic field loops above those areas. This activity should increase even higher as the sun is preparing to approach its highest level of activity during this solar maximum phase in late 2013 or early 2014.
Enjoy the show!
