This has got to be the most amazing image of the Sun I have ever seen.



Link to story and video:

"Last Friday the Sun put on a magnificent display, ejecting a massive solar filament that was captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) in all its glory."

Today's SDO images show the solar disk partially out of frame, and in different locations at different times. I have never seen that before and I check almost every day. Perhaps some pointing issue?

PS Some stunning flares/prominences, BTW!

Looks like very ordinary, regular flat-field maneuvers. They've done them many many times in the past.

Confirmed...

Ah thanks, good to know! I guess I just never happened to look at the web page when they were doing that before.

I managed to reprocess some frames grabbed from the 13th of May, in the morning (about 6:00 AM GMT), with 131 and 171 filters smile.gif.

A really creative and informative video was released a couple of days ago on the NASA Goddard website, showing the Sun in multiple SDO filters at the same time.

I've just performed an animation of solar activity over a period of 24 hours on March 21, 2017 on the basis of SDO data.
Time scale: 1/4hour/second, Extreme Ultraviolet AIA171.
The Earth was incorporated at scale into the animation for size comparison.

Here is the outcome:
