Sun is the most important element of our solar system giving life to many. The solar activities have been recorded for ages but actual records were maintained by the United States space agency NASA.

On Wednesday, NASA celebrated 20 years of the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) by releasing a video.

The observatory which was launched on December 2, 1995 studied the sun and revolutionised the field of science also known as heliophysics.

This study provided the basis for nearly 5,000 scientific papers and a number of detailed images of the sun allowing scientists to monitor changes in solar energy, solar wind, and more.

In order to celebrate the event, the agency also released a stunning video featuring highlights from SOHO's 20 years in space.
