This is ‘A Decade Of Sun’, a timelapse of the sun using photos captured by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). Each day of the past ten years is represented by a single second of footage, with 24 frames/second (each frame one real-time hour), for a total of 61-minutes of retina-melting action. Obviously, it’s a shame they didn’t decide to extend the video project through 2020 where, if you slowed the video down to quarter speed and looked really close you’d be able to see my spaceship flying directly into the sun.
Thanks to my dad, who thinks I’m so bright he calls me sun! “It’s son, s-o-n.” Ooooooh.
