This 4K NASA video of the Sun is going to warm your soul

At some vague point during the passage of childhood, three strict rules are branded upon your young mind:

Never talk to strangers

Don't step on pavement cracks

Never, ever look directly at the Sun

That final edict now comes with an important caveat: unless you're using NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

The SDO captures images of the Sun in 10 different wavelengths, each highlighting a different temperature of solar material. In the above 30 minutes, you're treated to a kaleidoscopic lightshow from our nearest star, taking in a variety of its varying wavelengths.

Dim the lights, crab a blanket and keep autumn at bay for a while.
