The European Space Agency (ESA) has recently shared a number of spectacular Sun Reports as never before. And despite the fact that there are various photos and videos, the picture that they just presented is particularly amazing.
With its official Twitter account, the ESA has shown time-based recording, which is faster than real-time, images obtained from satellites PROBA-2, through its SWAP camera.

This video, which was released on Wednesday, December 12 and already exceeds 10,000 views, was accompanied by a message that read: "Impressive time delay of the incredible atmosphere of the Sun that changes the shape taken by the camera on the Proba-2 SWAP @ ESA, between July and August 2014.
"In order to achieve accurate and reliable weather services in the universe, it is necessary to monitor the sun and the space environment from various perspectives together with the timely dissemination of reliable data," the agency said in a statement.
Despite the small weight of just over 286 kilograms, this satellite represents an essential and very effective tool for learning the Sun.
His predecessor, Ulysses, was the first device that could approach the solar panels, but did not have the imaging equipment.
