NASA's First Images of the Sun in 3-D

NASA

2007

For the first time ever, NASA has obtained 3-D images of the dynamic churning atmosphere of the sun — thanks to the two STEREO spacecraft launched in 2006. This new view will greatly aid scientists' ability to understand solar physics and improve space weather forecasting.

This is a stereographic version of the movie. Red/Cyan stereo glasses are required to view it properly.
