of the Sun, by SDO Over Last 5 Years
Here is a video with highlights of the last five years of solar activity as seen by the SDO spacecraft. This is worth seeing on a larger monitor, so try to view it full screen on something larger than your palm. The music is pretty good too. It is worth the 20-some minutes of stunning viewing. Be sure to share!
