This photo shows the Sun’s power in exquisite detail

From 93 million miles away, we earthlings are blissfully unaware of the sheer magnitude of powerful activity roiling on the the Sun’s surface. But thanks to NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) spacecraft, which has been snapping pictures of the Sun for the last five years, we can see this massive monster in action, like in the SDO image above. The Sun’s magnetic field is constantly changing unlike Earth’s, which means it’s growing and shrinking in strength. Source: This photo shows the Sun’s power in exquisite detail
