Washington: US space agency NASA has put out a time lapse video of the Sun squeezing a decade’s time into one hour. The Sun has been under the watch of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) for over a decade.

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center recently shared a video on their official YouTube channel which has now left people in awe. They shared a 10-year-long incredible timelapse video of the Sun and chances are after seeing the clip you’ll think that it is nothing short of magnificent.

In the post’s caption the agency wrote that “NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory — SDO — has now been watching the Sun non-stop for over a full decade.”

They also added the important events that take place in the course of 10 years in a chronological order. Further, the agency also provided links for each of the events for those who want to know the incidents in detail.

The video shows the rise and fall in an activity that occurs as part of the Sun’s 11-year solar cycle and notable events, like transiting planets and eruptions.

The music in the video has been composed by German musician Lars Leonhard.

The SDO mission of NASA was launched in the year 2010 to understand the origin of Sun’s energy, how the inside of the Sun works, and how energy is stored and released in the Sun’s atmosphere. SDO is the first satellite under the Living with a Star (LWS) program at NASA.
