The sun keeps our planet alive and the NASA 'Three Years of Sun in Three Minutes' video helps put the illusive star into a new focus unlike anything we've ever seen before. The video was produced by utilizing the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which took a series of photographs over the course of three years.

The final cut of NASA 'Three Years of Sun in Three Minutes' progresses at a rate of two images per day over the span of the three year project. Paired with a classical piece that gives the video a ballet-like sentiment, the NASA 'Three Years of Sun in Three Minutes' is beautiful snapshot of our solar system's most important star.
