    This montage features excerpts of 4K full-disk pictures in extreme ultraviolet channels,
    mainly using wavelengths of 30.4 nm (50,000 Kelvin) partially in combination with 17.1 nm (6.3×105 Kelvin),
    and offers a glance at spicules, solar flares, filaments and an overview of the sun’s atmosphere.

    The footage was captured by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) maintained by the Joint Science Operations Center
    (Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory in collaboration with Stanford University)
