New Delhi: The US space agency NASA has released a close-up video of solar material bursting repeatedly from the Sun.

It was captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory or SDO on July 9-10, 2016. And they captured it in wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light, which are typically invisible to our eyes.

According to NASA, the Sun is composed of plasma, a gas in which the negative electrons move freely around the positive ions, forming a powerful mix of charged particles.

Each burst of plasma licks out from the surface only to withdraw back into the active region – a dance commanded by complex magnetic forces above the sun, as reported.

The imagery is colorized in red in the video for easy viewing.
