The clip is edited time lapse sequences of the sun’s atmosphere observed by the Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft between 2011 and 2015. This montage features excerpts of 4K full-disk pictures in severe ultraviolet channels, mostly using wavelengths of 30.4 nm (50,000 Kelvin) partly in combination with 17.1 nm (6.3×105 Kelvin), and provides a glance at spicules, solar flares, filaments and an overview of the sun’s atmosphere. The footage was beautifully captured by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) maintained by the Joint Science Operations Center (Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory in collaboration with Stanford University)
