Incandescent Sun

“This video takes SDO images and applies additional processing to enhance the structures visible. While there is no scientific value to this processing, it does result in a beautiful, new way of looking at the sun. The original frames are in the 171 Angstrom wavelength of extreme ultraviolet. This wavelength shows plasma in the solar atmosphere, called the corona, that is around 600,000 Kelvin. The loops represent plasma held in place by magnetic fields. They are concentrated in “active regions” where the magnetic fields are the strongest. These active regions usually appear in visible light as sunspots. The events in this video represent 24 hours of activity.” — LittleSDOHMI

Monster Tubulum

“So here it is, complete with 37 cuts and an extended intermission, for your entertainment. (it’s just one of those things so terribly long you can’t help but watch, hoping something will happen). P.S. This video is best viewed on computers equipped with sub-woofers. With the volume cranked! The YouTube compression cut off half the bottom end, but it still gets through.” — thejerrymobile
