Your Birthday Sun Chart

Earlier this week NASA released an incredible timelapse video of sun activity over the last ten years.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has been observing the Sun from Earth orbit for the last ten years. During this time it has gathered over 425 million high-resolution images of the Sun. This week NASA compiled these images into a timelapse video which condenses a decade of sun activity into just one hour (the video shows one sun image for every hour).

Mat Miller has now used NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory to create a fun interactive tool which can show you the sun on your birthday for every year from 2011 and 2019. Of course it doesn't have to be your birthday. Using the tool you can pick any day of the year to view nine separate animated images showing sun activity for every year (2011-2019) on your selected date.
