5 Years of the Sun


The Solar Dynamics Observatory was launched five years ago yesterday. This time-lapse video was assembled from SDO data from in June, 2010, until last week. The data rate is three frames per day. The different colors represent the different wavelengths used by SDO to observe the Sun.
