NASA was been wowing us with beautiful imagery from Mars and of our own planet’s volcanic activity, and now the space agency has released some spectacular photos and videos of our sun; we’ve included a few below.

The recently launched Solar Dynamics Observatory has been taking some unique portraits of our solar companion using four telescopes looking at the sun in different wavelengths. The results are unusual and beautiful, fulfilling the mission’s goal of exploring “solar activity in unprecedented detail.”

The SDO will be sending back 1.5 terabytes of data per day, and NASA is releasing much of the footage on their YouTube channel. You can also follow the mission on Twitter.
