Awesome Video of the Sun – level 2

19-09-2022 15:00

NASA released a new HD video of the sun, and it calls it “thermonuclear art”.

A telescope took a picture of the sun every 12 seconds in ten wavelengths of light. Then, people put these images together to create a video. It took the NASA team about ten hours to produce one minute of the video.

NASA also recently released footage of Jupiter in 4K HD. It shows changes in the planet’s Giant Red Spot.

Difficult words: thermonuclear (relating to nuclear reactions which happen on the sun), telescope (a thing for watching things which are very far away), wavelength (type).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about this video of the sun and of Jupiter?
