The European Space Agency (ESA) recently divided a series of spectacular Sun reproductions as never seen before. And despite the fact that there are different photographs and videos, the image they have just introduced is especially incredible.
By its official Twitter account ESA showed a time-lapse recording, that is, faster than in real time, of the images received thanks to the satellite PROBA-2, through its SWAP camera.

Despite its small weight of just over 286 pounds, this satellite is an essential and very effective tool for studying the Sun.
His predecessor, Ulysses, was the first device that could reach the solar poles, but it did not have tools to take images.
