NASA space observatory sends back a couple of mind blowing eye dazzling images of the Sun. I guess I’m exaggerating a little bit, but I’m really loving these pics.

The people working at NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) had another of their periodic “wow” moments when the latest transmissions from space turned up a couple of unique images of the sun in eclipse. The first shot, transmitted earlier this morning between 2:15 to 3:45 ET, captured the sun partially blocked from view by the Earth. Five hours later, they took this other pic.

Good news! This is going to be a regular thing for the next three weeks, as Earth blocks the craft’s view of the sun for a period of time each day, so we’re probably gonna be treated with more such stunning images in the near future – so be sure not to miss out on them.
