Compelling
Time is an illusion?
People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.

Ask physicists what time actually is, and the answer might shock you: They have no idea. Even more surprising, the deep sense we have of time passing from present to past may be nothing more than an illusion. How can our understanding of something so familiar be so wrong?

Brian Greene, Professor of Physics and Mathematics at Columbia University reveal a new way of thinking about time in which moments past, present, and future - from the dinosaurs kingdom  to the birth of your great great grandchildren exist all at once. This journey will bring us all the way back to the Big Bang, where physicists think the ultimate secrets of time may be hidden.
I'm not sure if I still need to wear a watch now ;)

Very awesome indeed.
Hubble Supernova
Most stars in the Universe are small and insignificant, like our Sun. They eventually fizzle and die without much drama. But a few light up the sky when they die, and in the process, they don't just tell us about the lives of stars: they create the building blocks of life, and help us to unravel the whole history of the Universe. These are the stars that end their lives as supernovae, explosions that are among the most violent events in the Universe.

Almost an X Class Solar Flare
From NASA: The Sun unleashed a M-9.3 flare, just short of an X class (the largest) from an active region right at the Sun's edge (Mar. 12-13, 2014). The bright flash is the tell tale sign of a flare. The brightness of the flare causes very bright saturation and blooming above and below the flare region on the CCD detector and caused extended diffraction patterns to spread out across the SDO imager. The video clip shows a smaller flare preceded this one as well. The video covers about 15 hours. The still shows the peak of the flare at 22:38 UT on Mar. 12. Images were taken in extreme ultraviolet light, showing ionized iron at 10 million degrees. Credit: Solar Dynamics Observatory/NASA.
