Solar Timelapse Video Generator with #raspberrypi #piday @Raspberry_Pi

Nice project from Mike Johanning on YouTube:

The ESTVG is a collection of scripts and programs running on a Raspberry Pi B+. The Raspberry Pi is a small Linux computer that is powered with just USB power.

Every 15 minutes the Pi downloads and processes a new AIA 171 image of the sun from Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) is a NASA mission which has been observing the Sun since 2010. Launched on February 11, 2010, the observatory is part of the Living With a Star (LWS) program. [1]
