The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) mission has returned unprecedented images of solar flares, eruptions of prominences, and the early stages of coronal mass ejections (CMEs). Behold some of the most beautiful, interesting, and mesmerizing events seen by SDO during its first year. Video is below.
This spectacular highlight reel of videos shot by NASA‘s SDO commemorates the year anniversary of when NASA revealed the first images taken by the spacecraft.
Over the past year, the sun has gone from one of the most docile periods in many years to the point where you might say that all hell is breaking loose.
Hat tip to Mashable for the find.
