Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 6, 2015 10:45 PM

This video may change the way you view the sun. For the last five years NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has been taking images of the sun and this video provides views that are breath taking. I have shown this video to students from kindergarten through grade 7 and all want to see it again. There are amazing images with music, and very few words. Try to find five minutes in your day to watch this, and chances are you will find yourself forwarding the link to others.

Quoting from NASA "Watch the movie to see giant clouds of solar material hurled out into space, the dance of giant loops hovering in the corona, and huge sunspots growing and shrinking on the sun's surface."
