This time-lapse video from PROBA2 shows rarely seen features in the Sun's corona. PROBA2's SWAP (Sun Watcher with APS detector and Image Processing) camera has been monitoring the Sun since February 2010 and, as seen in this sequence from July and August 2014, produces striking views showing the three-dimensional structure of the corona.
