Great Five-year Video of the Sun – level 2

04-04-2022 15:00

NASA’s scientists took a picture of the sun every eight hours from June 2010 to February 2015. They put the pictures together and created a time-lapse video. Make sure to check it out!

You can see how the sun hurls solar material into space. This material which stays around the sun is known as the corona.

The scientists also studied the sun’s energy and its effects on earth.

Difficult words: hurl (to throw), solar (relating to the sun), corona (the circle of light around the sun).

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