Stunning video of the sun's surface emerges

Jorrit Leenaarts, director of Stockholm University's Institute for Solar Physics, led a study that was published in the Journal of Astronomy & Astrophysics last year.

In the video we can see the result of that study, which photographed a vast area of the sun. In them we see the sun's "skin", or photo-sphere, appears to be seems to be pulsing and moving. That is where the hot gases from the sun rise to cool down and afterwards fall back down.
