Solar Flare from SDO, April 2011 (AIA 94 Å)
The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) observed a large solar flare in April 2011.
This visualization was generated using quick-look time resolution (36 seconds) data from the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA). Two datasets are used, the SDO/AIA 94 Ångstrom wavelength (green color table). This wavelength is in the ultraviolet band of the electromagnetic spectrum. It is not visible to the human eye or to ground-based telescopes so coded colors are used in presentation.
It is the source material for "SDO Year 2 video".
