Watch the amazing activity on the surface of the Sun on your Windows Phone while it really happens. The Sun Live gives you the always updated images and latest videos from the Solar Dynamics Observatory orbiting the Earth and monitoring the Sun 24/7 plus the SDO Pick of the Week. Hunt for prominences, flares and sun spots and save the most spectacular images on your phone or send them through mail, mms or social media.

As the Solar Cycle is close to its 11 year maximum, and the solar magnetic field according to NASA is going to flip during the next couple of months, our Sun is expected to display a lot of activity in the near future. Don't be left out of the action. 

Enjoy the new fascinating facts about the Sun, learn more and get started observing the Sun yourself by following the tips and recommendations.

The Sun Live can also update its live tile or the lock screen background image, so you always know what is going on with the Sun right now. Pin secondary tiles for faster access to your favorite sections.

All solar images courtesy of NASA/SDO and the AIA, EVE, and HMI science teams.
