NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captures solar tornadoes, dark plasma dancing on the sun

NASA has released awesome video of solar tornadoes.

The 'twisters ‘are actually made up of dark plasma slip-sliding across the surface of the Sun.

the images were taken over a period of 30 hours between February 7th and 8th.

Each frame of video was captured every four minutes by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, also called the SDO satellite.

NASA says without the SDO, which launched two years ago, these images would never be seen.
