The NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) can track bright points in the solar atmosphere and magnetic signatures on our star's surface to reveal a bit more about what lies beneath the sun's surface.
It took 10 years to create this image of our changing Sun. Taken from space by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), it shows a dramatically different picture than the one we receive on Earth.
Scientists track sunspots that are part of active regions, which often produce large explosions on the sun such as solar flares and coronal mass ejections, or CMEs.
About 25% of Americans don't know that the Earth rotates the sun. A poll from the National Science Foundation was the bearer of the bad news.
The sun is our nearest star and the source of all our light and heat on Earth but recent reports have highlighted an ongoing steep decline in solar activity.
The Sun is kicking off the new year with a bit of solar activity. It's unleashed the first X-class solar flare of 2014. Peaking at 1:32 p.m. EST on Jan. 7, the solar flare is significant and followed right on the heels of a mid-level flare earlier that day.
Solar activity was once thought to influence climate. In fact, some scientists have speculated that it might have helped impact current changing temperatures. Now, though, researchers have shown that this isn't the case; climate change has not been strongly influenced by variations in heat from the ...
NASA has captured an absolutely stunning light show just in time for the holidays. A new NASA movie of the sun based on data from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) reveals the wide range of wavelengths, light invisible to the naked eye, the telescope can view.
NASA has captured some new and stunning images of the Sun. The new pictures reveal a bit more about our nearest star, showing that the location between the surface of the sun and its atmosphere is far more violent than previously thought.
New findings reveal that Vitamin D does not aid only in maintaining bone health but also plays a crucial role in shielding the brain and tissues from damages.
Hugh Jackman, the popular actor of Wolverine fame revealed that he was diagnosed with skin cancer and thanks his wife Deborra-Lee Furness for insisting on getting a lump on his nose checked and removed in time
