Video made from frames acquired during the first approach with the star.

Astronomers have unveiled a video of the motion of the solar wind, which was composed from frames obtained by the probe Parker during the first approach with the star in November last year. Since then, the unit made another close approach to the Sun and is preparing for a third, reports the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference to zn.ua.

The first rendezvous with the star took place from 6 to 10 November 2018. Parker then through the optical system WISPR (Wide-field Imager for Solar PRobe), consisting of two telescopes, was able to capture the dynamics of the solar wind flow. When the star was to the left, out of sight of the system, and on the right you can see part of the milky Way.
