The dark frames in video captured because of the Earth or Moon eclipsed SDO as they passed between the spacecraft and the sun. AS per the NASA, the information gathered through this footage enhances the discoveries about the closest star. And Further, it develops the studies of the sun’s influencing power to the solar system.
