When CMEs are directed towards Earth they can generate auroras, the spectacular atmospheric displays also known as "northern lights" (photo by Chris VenHaus, 2001).In this project you'll use images from the SOHO satellite to measure how fast CMEs move.

SDO is designed to help us understand the Sun's influence on Earth and Near-Earth space by studying the solar atmosphere on small scales of space and time and in many wavelengths simultaneously. NASA.gov brings you the latest images, videos and news from America's space agency.

Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) The CDS Logo (Credit: CDS) SOHO was launched on board an Atlas 2AS rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida on 2nd December 1995. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory During the Eclipse The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO, will not witness an eclipse from space in conjunc-tion with the total solar eclipse seen on Aug. 21, 2017—because it orbits a point in space that is well past the Moon’s orbit. This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory article.

These bursts are called coronal mass ejections (or CMEs). Brautigan, R., Trout Fishing in America Welcome to the unofficial Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) Web pages.This service is meant to provide information of interest to the general public, as well as to the international solar physics and solar-terrestrial physics communities, on the goals and status of the SOHO mission. SOHO is an ESA/NASA collaborative mission within ESA's `Solar Terrestrial Science Program' (STSP), and it is also part of ISTP (International Solar Terrestrial Physics Program).

SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) Spacecraft Launch Mission Status Sensor Complement Mission Achievements SOHO - Comet hunter References. SOHO orbits around the Sun Abstract The sun sometimes releases huge bursts of electrified gases into space. SOHO (SOlar Heliospheric Observatory) is a space-based observatory, viewing and investigating the Sun from its deep core, through its outer atmosphere - the corona - and the domain of the solar wind, out to a distance ten times beyond the Earth's orbit.
