SDO Solar Images & Data Collection 2010-2013

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 […]

Comet Grazing the Sun

In December 2011, comet Lovejoy dove through the sun’s corona.  NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured images offering scientists a unique opportunity to observe the phenomenon. Comet tails have ionized gases which are affected by the sun’s magnetic field, and a comet’s encounter with the sun is a treat for heliophysicits to continue their study of […]
