We all love a good time lapse and this one is pretty special. The video has been released by NASA to mark the 5th Anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory, a satellite which observes the earth facing side of the sun.
The SDO takes a photo nearly once a second and since its launch has captured over 200 million photos and 2,600 terabytes of data! The results are truly spectacular and look like something from Doctor Who or a Jonathan Nolan film – but it’s real!
I found it really inspiring. You just don’t think of all that going on up there above our heads!
