Every Friday, @CNNLightYears will suggest interesting and exciting space and science Twitter accounts to follow.

To help you keep up with the news on solar flares, coronal mass ejections and other news from our Sun, @CNNLightYears suggests you follow the trio of accounts related to NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.

Managed by Goddard Spaceflight Center, @NASA_SDO posts the latest news about solar activity, straight from the source.

SDO has a mascot, @Camilla_SDO, affectionately known as the "space chicken." Camilla Corona SDO's goal is to spread the news about the SDO mission through education and outreach activities.

The newest SDO account is @NASA_SDO_EDU, an account dedicated to supporting science teachers and others interested in STEM (science, technology, education and math) education.

You can also follow Twitter updates from @CNNLightYears.
