You've never seen a timelapse of this scale before.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory – aka SDO – has been looping around earth and watching the sun non-stop for over a full decade.

Over the last ten years SDO has gathered 425 million high res images of the sun, resulting in 20 million gigabytes of data.

These observations have resulted in a great amount of new discoveries about how our sun works, but it's also resulted in this gorgeous, one hour long timelapse video.

The accompanying music “Solar Observer” was composed by German composer Lars Leonhard.
