Four-day time lapse:
Our website features a continually updated image of the sun provided by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) in the design's background. The featured image is a very high resolution image of the sun taken by SDO's Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) and refreshed every hour.
Our circular grid scoring system determines what angle has the most "interesting" solar activity; the angle with the brightest colors along specified points wins, and that activity rotates to feature the "coolest" (or dare we say "hottest") solar activity in the website header.
