NASA releases 10-year time lapse of the sun Incredible 10-Year Time Lapse of Sun From NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory [Video]

"The images where the Sun is off-center were observed when SDO was calibrating its instruments", the space agency said. This hypnotic composite video celebrates the tenth anniversary of the SDO probe and all its myriad achivements in understanding the solar variations that affect and transform life on Earth. It tweeted and wrote, On this Sun Day, take a look at a decade of images of the Sun, recorded by the Solar Dynamics Observatory Satellite.

Equipped with a trio of sensitive instruments, the SDO's brilliant ten-year time lapse short spotlights photos taken at a wavelength of 17.1 nanometers, which is an extreme ultraviolet wavelength that unveils the Sun's outermost atmospheric layer, the shimmering corona.

The 61-minute time-lapse showed many events that occurred to the Sun as a part of its 10-year solar cycle and notable events, such as Sunquake, partial Solar Eclipse, Venus transition, 2012 CM (Coronal Mass Ejection), Hurricanes, and Solar Eclipse.

Over the course of 10 years the hardy probe has taken an image of our star on average once every 0.75 seconds, amassing an impressive 425 million images of the Sun, and transmitting 20 million gigabytes of data back to Earth. Apart from the rise and fall in the activity of the Sun, the video might also help space scientists gather new information about the transiting planets and other eruptions in the Solar system.

NASA will continue to keep a watch on the Sun so that no significant development misses its observations.

Firstly, the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) is a battery of four telescopes created to photograph the Sun's surface and atmosphere.

This is the regular Sun cycle, where it moves from a period of high activity called the Solar Maximum to a period of low activity called the Solar Minimum.

While an instrument failure resulted in a longer blackout in 2016. Musician Lars Leonhard was on board to compose the theme titled 'Solar Observer'.
