NASA/ESA Release the First Images from the Solar Orbiter


This animation shows a series of views of the Sun captured by Extreme Ultraviolet Imager on the Solar Orbiter on 30 May. They show the Sun’s appearance at a wavelength of 17 nanometers in the extreme ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Images at this wavelength allow examination of the Sun’s upper atmosphere and the corona, regions with temperatures of more than 1,000,000 C.
