  • Sonnenfinsternis, vom Apollo-12-Raumschiff aus gesehen

    Sonnenfinsternis, vom Apollo-12-Raumschiff aus gesehen

    This photograph of the eclipse of the sun was taken with a 16mm motion picture camera from the Apollo 12 spacecraft during its trans-Earth journey home from the moon. The fascinating view was created when the Earth moved directly between the sun and the Apollo 12 spacecraft. Aboard Apollo 12 were astronauts Charles Conrad Jr., commander; Richard F. Gordon Jr., command module pilot; and Alan L. Bean, lunar module pilot. While astronauts Conrad and Bean descended in the Lunar Module (LM) "Intrepid" to explore the Ocean of Storms region of the moon, astronaut Gordon remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) "Yankee Clipper" in lunar orbit.

  • Sonne, große wie ein Griff geformte Protuberanz

    Sonne, große wie ein Griff geformte Protuberanz

    Große wie ein Griff geformte Protuberanz, aufgenommen mit dem Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope, SOHO, 14.9.1999

    Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT) image of a huge, handle-shaped prominence taken on Sept. 14, 1999 taken in the 304 angstrom wavelength - Prominences are huge clouds of relatively cool dense plasma suspended in the Sun's hot, thin corona. At times, they can erupt, escaping the Sun's atmosphere. Emission in this spectral line shows the upper chromosphere at a temperature of about 60,000 degrees K. Every feature in the image traces magnetic field structure. The hottest areas appear almost white, while the darker red areas indicate cooler temperatures.

    Sonne, Farbkomposit solarer Strukturen

    Farbkomposit solarer Strukturen, Kombination von Aufnahmen in drei Wellenlängen, Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope, SOHO

    This composite image combines Extreme Ultravoilet Imaging Telescope (EIT) images from three wavelengths (171, 195 and 284 angstrom) into one that reveals solar features unique to each wavelength. Since the EIT images come to us from the spacecraft in black and white, they are color coded for easy identification. For this image, the nearly simultaneous images from May 1998 were each given a color code (red, yellow and blue) and merged into one.

  • Sonne, aktive Region im Profil mit Loops und Eruptionen

    Sonne, aktive Region im Profil mit Loops und Eruptionen

    Sonne, aktive Region im Profil mit Loops und Eruptionen, 23.-27.2.2011, im extremen Ultraviolett

    As an active region rotated into view, SDO got a good profile look at the constantly changing magnetic field lines arcing high above it (Feb. 23-27, 2011). In extreme ultraviolet light the multitude of lines are revealed because charged particles are spinning along them. The interactions seen here are within an extensive and busy action region. If you watch the clip closely, you can see an eruptive blast (along with a strong flare) from the leading region near the beginning of the clip. These regions will be facing Earth beginning March 3, so for about the following week they could generate "space weather" effects.

  • Vorübergang der Venus über 6 Stunden vor der Sonne

    Vorübergang der Venus über 6 Stunden vor der Sonne

    Sonne, Darstellung des Vorübergangs der Venus über 6 Stunden, 5./6.6.2012, im extremen Ultraviolett

    A good portion of the world was watching as Venus glided in front of the Sun for over six hours (June 5 - 6, 2012). SDO implemented specially planned operations to view the event in great detail in many wavelengths of light. The results were the best HD views of a transit ever taken. The image and movie shown here were taken in the 171 Angstrom wavelength of extreme UV light. Numerous image and movie versions of the Venus transit as seen by SDO can be found here: http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a010000/a010900/a010996/index.html The approach of Venus towards the Sun as seen by the SOHO coronagraphs can be seen here: http://soho.nascom.nasa.gov/pickoftheweek/old/01jun2012/

    Sonne, globale Ansicht im extremen Ultraviolett, Einzelbild aus Movie

    Watch the Sun rotate for over a month brought to you by SDO. Since the Sun rotates once every 27 days on average, this movie presents more than an entire solar rotation. From March 30 through Apr. 29, 2011, the Sun sported quite a few active regions and magnetic loops. The movie shows the Sun in the 171 Angstrom wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light (capturing ionized iron heated to about 600,000 degrees), color coded to appear gold. The movie is based on a frame taken every 15 minutes being shown at 24 frames per second, with very few data gaps in this almost two-minute movie.

    Sonne, Entwicklung einer langer Protuberanz bis zur Auflösung, 21.-23.11.2011, im extremen Ultraviolett

    A long, solar prominence that rotated into view almost two weeks ago finally became disorganized and broke away into space forming a nifty large loop as it did (Nov. 21-23, 2011). NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) watched in extreme ultraviolet light as the magnetic forces that tethered it in place gradually became unstable, the prominence began to crumble, and eventually lifted off. The Sun is becoming more active as it approaches the solar maximum expected in 2013.

    Sonne, Gruppe von Sonnenflecken über neun Tage (24.7.-1.8.2012)

    The video clip shows the Sun peppered with groups of sunspots over almost nine days (July 24 - August 1, 2012). These spots have been the source of numerous flare and coronal mass ejections. This is a harbinger of things to come as the Sun approaches its period of maximum activity in 2013. Note that the sunspots and activity is in the southern hemisphere, which has been the source of much of the activity the past couple of months: before that most of the activity had been in the northern hemisphere.

  • Sonne, aktive Region am Rand mit Bögen und dunklem Material

    Sonne, aktive Region am Rand mit Bögen und dunklem Material

    Sonne, aktive Region am Rand mit Bögen und dunklem Material, 20.-22.7.2011, im extremen Ultraviolett

    This close-up presents an active region in profile as it rotated out of view. We can observe both the bright arching field lines and smaller pieces of darker matter in their midst being pulled back and forth just above the Sun's surface over about 36 hours (July 20-22, 2011). Both of these physical responses were caused by strong, tangled magnetic forces that are constantly evolving and reorganizing within the active region. Other active regions can be seen in the foreground as well. The image and movie were taken in extreme ultraviolet light of ionized iron heated to one million degrees.

    Sonne, Vorübergang von Merkur am 2.5.2016 im extremen Ultraviolett, AIA

    On May 9, 2016, Mercury passed directly between the Sun and Earth, making a transit of the Sun. Mercury transits happen about 13 times each century. NASA's SDO studies the Sun 24/7 and captured the eight-hour event. The images of Mercury's journey across the Sun were taken in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light.

  • Sonne, Transit des Mond im Blickfeld von SDO

    Sonne, Transit des Mond im Blickfeld von SDO

    Sonne, Transit des Mond im Blickfeld von SDO am 13.9.3015, AIA

    On Sept. 13, 2015, as NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, kept up its constant watch on the sun, its view was photobombed not once, but twice. Just as the moon came into SDO's field of view on a path to cross the sun, Earth entered the picture, blocking SDO's view completely. When SDO's orbit finally emerged from behind Earth, the moon was just completing its journey across the sun's face.

    Though SDO sees dozens of Earth eclipses and several lunar transits each year, this is the first time ever that the two have coincided.

    SDO's orbit usually gives us unobstructed views of the sun, but Earth's revolution around the sun means that SDO's orbit passes behind Earth twice each year, for two to three weeks at a time. During these phases, Earth blocks SDO's view of the sun for anywhere from a few minutes to over an hour once each day.

    Earth's outline looks fuzzy, while the moon's is crystal-clear. This is because-while the planet itself completely blocks the sun's light-Earth's atmosphere is an incomplete barrier, blocking different amounts of light at different altitudes. However, the moon has no atmosphere, so during the transit we can see the crisp edges of the moon's horizon.

    The moon eclipses SDO's view of the sun on September 13, 2015.

    SDO is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. Its Atmosphere Imaging Assembly was built by the Lockheed Martin Solar Astrophysics Laboratory (LMSAL), Palo Alto, California.

  • Sonne, Sequenz von Aufnahmen der oberen Atmosphäre

    Sonne, Sequenz von Aufnahmen der oberen Atmosphäre

    Sonne, Sequenz von Aufnahmen der oberen Atmosphäre vom 27.10.2017 in gefiltertem weißen Licht und sieben unterschiedlichen Wellenlängen des extremen Ultraviolett

    This sequence of images shows the sun from its surface to its upper atmosphere all taken at about the same time (Oct. 27, 2017). The first shows the surface of the sun in filtered white light; the other seven images were taken in different wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light. Note that each wavelength reveals somewhat different features. They are shown in order of temperature from the first one at 6,000 degree C. surface out to about 10 million degrees C. in the upper atmosphere. Yes, the sun's outer atmosphere is much, much hotter than the surface. Scientists are getting closer to solving the processes that generate this phenomenon.

  • Sonne, zwei dynamische aktive Regionen

    Sonne, zwei dynamische aktive Regionen

    Sonne, zwei dynamische aktive Regionen in zwei Wellenlängen des extremen Ultravioletts und Darstellung der Sonnenflecken (25.-27.8.2011)

    A pair of dynamic active regions rotated into view as SDO caught the activity over for a little over two days (Aug. 15 - 17, 2011). One can compare the activity in this side-by-side-by-side video clip in three wavelengths. At left, plasma near the surface is shown at 60,000 degrees in extreme ultraviolet light. Note that the feature rising up above the Sun's edge between the active regions is a quiescent prominence. The middle portion with many looping arcs, also in extreme UV light, shows plasma heated to about a million degrees. The right portion shows the magnetically intense sunspots themselves that are the sources of all the activity. These areas have produced smaller solar storms and could yet generate stronger ones. Time will tell.
