NASA releases incredible time-lapse video documenting the Sun over a decade
NASA has released stunning new footage of the Sun captured by a spacecraft that has orbited the Earth continuously over the last ten years.
The one-hour-long time-lapse video - compiled using images taken by Nasa's Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft - shows the rise and fall in activity that occurs as part of the star's 11-year solar cycle.
It reveals in spectacular detail dramatic events like solar eruptions on the Sun's surface and shows the passage of transiting planets across its face.
