(ORDO NEWS) — NASA‘s Goddard Space Flight Center released an hour-long video showing 133 days of the sun’s life.
The video shows the sun’s chaotic surface, where huge loops of plasma arc above the star along magnetic field lines.
Sometimes loops of plasma connect with a star, and sometimes they are ejected into space, creating dangerous space weather.
The images were taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) spacecraft, launched in 2010 as part of NASA’s Living with a Star (LWS) program.
Its main mission lasted five years, but NASA says SDO should be operational until 2030.
