The SDO pages (Solar Dynamics Observatory), NASA program to investigate the causes of solar variations, have a repository spectacular images of the sun.
These pages contain wealth of scientific information on issues concerning solar radiation, with periodic updates its image bank at different frequencies and with different computer processing.
A place for lovers of astrophysics and the study of our solar system and a visual treat for fans of images of the universe.
