Sun  ID: 3828

Solar Dynamics Observatory - Atmospheric Imaging Assembly

The Sun's activity increases as we enter solar cycle 24. But even several years away from the peak, the Sun in ultraviolet light shows a variety of activity.

This visualization consists of eight hours of SDO AIA imagery from the 30.4 nanometer filter (304 Ångstroms). This sequence plays at the full time cadence of the AIA instrument - one image every twelve seconds of real time - and showing thirty images per second on playback.
