    From the video description:

    It’s always shining, always ablaze with light and energy. In the ubiquity of solar output, Earth swims in an endless tide of particles. Every time half of the Earth faces the Sun, we experience the brightness of daytime, the Sun’s energy and light driving weather, biology and more. But in space, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) keeps an eye on our nearest star 24/7. SDO captures images of the Sun in 10 different wavelengths, each of which helps highlight a different temperature of solar material. In this video we experience images of the Sun in unprecedented detail captured by SDO. Presented in ultra-high definition video (4K) the video presents the nuclear fire of our life-giving star in intimate detail, offering new perspective into our own relationships with grand forces of the solar system.

    Either way it should give heliocentric religions a boost!

    I've just looked at bits of it (short attention span/lack of time)

    Far out man! In all senses of the phrase!

    (It is very beautiful)

    Is something special @cissy3

    Especially considering the clouds have been blocking it out for the last week.

    I have a GCSE in Astronomy and remember first seeing things like this for the first time. I never get bored of looking at things like this. The universe truly is an amazing place!
