Sun VIDEO From NASA Shows Star's Surface In New Light

Posted: Updated:

Incandescent. That's how NASA scientists described the sun in a new sun video released by the agency.

The dazzling video features images of our star from the Solar Dynamics Observatory in enhanced light, making surface structures more visible. It's hard to look away. The sun appears to twinkle and gleam as the video covers about 24 hours of activity from Sept. 25, according to NASA.

The space agency admits it didn't process these sun images for "scientific value"--but they sure do look beautiful! NASA also recently released video of huge solar flares erupting from the sun's surface.
