Even a blind pig can find an acorn, and even HuffPo occasionally has something worth seeing, like this video:
NASA has released a three-year time-lapse video of our star, compiled from incredible images captured by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) spacecraft.
The time-lapse compresses about two images a day into a few minutes. And don’t miss these highlights in the video above (time-marked by NASA): a partial eclipse by the moon at 0:30, a flare at 1:11, and the brief appearance of comet Lovejoy at 1:28. [JAC note: these incursions are quick, so watch carefully!]
NASA’s SDO has filmed the sun since spring 2010, providing breathtaking images. So think of this latest video as a “best of” reel, complete with stirring background music.
The music? According to the YouTube site, it’s “”A Lady’s Errand of Love,’ composed and performed by Martin Lass” (his website is here).
