solar Dynamics Observatory

Observing the sun as we do on earth in many wavelengths has evolved over the years. We now have the opprotunity to observe the sun in a new way from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. Go to the following site and view the sun in many wavelengths. Put in the date you wish to view, along with the wavelength, and view the daily image.

The SDO was launched on February 11, 2010 .
