An old video of NASA which recorded the sound of the Sun is going viral after Puducherry Lieutenant Governor and former top cop Kiran Bedi mentioned about hearing the sound of Aum (Om). Her claim has now become the new fodder of jokes and memes online. The humming noise of the Sun was released by NASA in July 2018. Bedi shared a 1 minute 50-second long video this morning which reads, "Nasa Recorded Sound of Sun, Sun Chants OM." No sooner, people started trolling here. It is actually a deep hum of our sun recorded in loops and it is edited footage, to make it sound like the chant.
Making memes has become an instant reaction of netizens. So when Kiran Bedi posted that video, she became the new target of jokes. Funny memes with people's own interpretations, the Sun's reaction in this case or be it Bedi's lack of knowledge are now surfacing online.

Om or NaMo?
Wrong. The Sun said NaMo NaMo.

The video is clearly edited and when someone of such stature shares such content with the public, it could be looked at as authentic by the uninformed. The original video has compiled the hum of the dynamic movement of the Sun’s atmosphere for over 20 years. This sound has helped the scientists study what can’t be observed with the naked eye.
