A 10-Year Animation of the Sun
Updated: Jan 31
I edited the recently released 10-year solar animation released by NASA SDO. The original hour-long animation (each day lasts one second) can be found here: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2020/watch-a-10-year-time-lapse-of-sun-from-nasa-s-sdo
In the video below, I sped up the animation such that one week lasts one second. So, the entire year-long animation is about 9 minutes instead of one hour as in the original NASA video. I've also removed most of the bad frames I found in the original animation. The transit of Venus in 2012 and the transit of Mercury in 2019 are also both visible and I briefly slowed the animation at those times to make the transits easier to see.
