The Sun In Ultra-HD (4K)

The sun is not a static ball in space, it is a constantly moving ball in space. The behaviour of the sun has been relevant to scientists as well as to artists. Every twelve seconds NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captures images of the sun. These images display information about the sun in ten different wavelengths of invisible ultraviolet light. Each wavelength is assigned a unique color and each frame is eight times the resolution of HD video. Creating only one minute of this footage takes the team up to ten hours. This detailed and inspiring footage is to be seen at the festival this year.
