A mesmerizing NASA video shows sun in intimate detail
NASA has released a video of the sun and its detail is beyond stunning.
Shown in ultra-HD (4K), our star spits thermonuclear fire as waves of flame dance across the undulating surface.
See the amazing imagery below:
Specific colors have been assigned to 10 different wavelengths of light in order to single out distinct temperatures of solar material.
The detail captured in the video is part of a painstaking process—NASA's media specialists work around 10 hours to complete just a single minute of the remarkable footage.
The images were captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, an orbiter that keeps constant watch on our star.
