"5000 C" refers to the temperature of the sun's visible surface in degrees Celsius. It is a short tour and another experiment in creating art from science data.

The video is made from images taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) ( sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/ ) from 2013-06-12 to 2013-06-28.

The basic video was made with JHelioviewer, a visualization tool for solar image data ( jhelioviewer.org/ ) and was finished with conventional video editing software.

The original images are courtesy of NASA/SDO and the AIA, EVE, and HMI science teams.

The music is "Hush" by Kevin McLeod ( incompetech.com/ )
