The Sun – our steady, reliable companion – tells a very different story up close

Created using footage captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft between 2011 and 2015, Sun is a mesmerising, perspective-shaking glimpse at Earth’s life-giving star. While seemingly immutable in the daytime sky, a closer look at the Sun reveals a dynamic and unpredictable body, blotted with sunspots and regularly spewing violent plasma eruptions far into interplanetary space.

Director: Michael König

Music: Murcof
