NASA video shows the sun in stunning HD
It turns out the most priceless work of art is 92 million miles away.
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which keeps an eye on the sun 24/7, just released a series of ultra HD images of our favorite star. The SDO snaps a photo every 12 seconds and captures the sun in 10 different wavelengths of ultraviolet light — something that would ordinarily be invisible to us. Thanks, NASA.
The lights are displayed in different colors depending on their temperatures.
NASA is calling it thermonuclear art- appropriately.
And you can bet something as awesome as this took plenty of time.
It took a team 10 hours just to create a minute of this reel (by the way- it's about 30 minutes long).
