In a close-up video of the Sun shows evident solar material twists. The turbulence is caused by combative magnetic forces on the Sun according to NASA.

This spinning cloud of solar material is part of a dark filament angling down from the upper left of the frame. Filaments are long, unstable clouds of solar material suspended above the sun’s surface by magnetic forces.

SDO captured this video in wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light, which is typically invisible to our eyes, but is colorized here in red for easy viewing.
