We’re often told to not look directly at the Sun — the fiery ball of a star in the sky and the source of both energy and light that keeps our world intact. But thanks to NASA, we get a closeup look at the entity with detailed shots of everything that happens on its surface. Captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), this 4K video offers an unprecedented view. The SDO captures images in 10 different wavelengths, each of which helps highlight a different temperature of solar material. A team of specialists at NASA worked over 10 hours to produce one minute of footage of the sun, which you can check out above.
