Sun Surface Activity 2018

365 images of the sun's surface during 2018 in one animation: ... n_in_20182

I thought it might be of interest to some.

This sequence of 365 images shows the changing activity of our Sun through the eyes of ESA’s Proba-2 satellite during 2018. The images were taken by the satellite’s SWAP camera, which works at extreme ultraviolet wavelengths to capture the Sun’s hot turbulent atmosphere – the corona, at temperatures of about a million degrees. The satellite is continuously monitoring the Sun – one image was selected to represent each day of the year.

Where are we going? And exactly why am I in a hand-basket?
