The Solar Orbiter probe, which was sent into space on February 10, 2020, captured phenomena unprecedented in the Sun. The photos revealed “omnipresent miniature solar flames” near the surface of the star at the center of our solar system.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to watch the Sun every day for 10 years? That’s what NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has been doing for the past decade.
If you’re curious about the result of this mission, NASA published an epic timelapse video called “A Decade of Sun” that shows the last 10 years of the Sun in just one hour.
The result is totally mesmerizing, and the imperfections in the footage just make it all the more real.
