NASA unleashed the 100 millionth image of sun captured by the ‘Solar Dynamics Observatory’, the Sun watching NASA spacecraft.

Four telescopes have been used to capture eight images of sun, and finally each of these images was then processed to one photo to create the entire output picture.

The ‘Solar Dynamics Observatory’ was launched on February 11, 2011, and from then the spacecraft has provided some impeccable images which played a crucial role in determining the effectiveness of studies related to solar atmosphere.

The SDO provides almost 57,600 images every day, and it clearly shows how solar materials sway and sometimes erupts in the solar atmosphere.

The photo album of SDO is already star studded, and the 100 millionth image acts as an incredible milestone image as around some years back, Sun was considered as an unassailable target.
