🎶 Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes 🎶⠀
This animation of 365 images shows the changing activity of our Sun through the eyes of our Proba-2 satellite during 2017, along with a partial eclipse for good measure.⠀
The images were taken by the satellite’s SWAP camera, which works at extreme ultraviolet wavelengths to capture the Sun’s hot turbulent atmosphere – the corona, at temperatures of about a million degrees. ⠀
