    NASA astronomers have been monitoring the Sun daily for over a decade, gathering 20 million gigabytes of images. Space observatories have amassed some 425 million photos of the Sun in total over the past ten years.

    NASA has uploaded a stunning hour-long video titled "A Decade of Sun" that shows images of the Sun, taken every day over the course of the past ten years with the help of the Solar Dynamics Observatory at a wavelength of 17.1 nanometres.

    Every second of the video represents one day of the solar cycle from 2 June 2010 to 1 June 2020.

    The footage showcases some of the solar events that occurred over the decade, including full and partial eclipses, sunquakes, and eruptions.
