SOHO Spacecraft Snaps New Photo After Glitch

NASA/ESA

The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), which is jointly managed by NASA and the European Space Agency, took this photo of the sun on May 11, 2012, after recovering from a technical glitch. The bright speck to the left of the center of the image is the planet Jupiter.

SDO's Ultra-high Definition View of 2012 Venus Transit - 304 Angstrom

NASA/SDO/AIA

On June 5-6 2012, SDO is collecting images of one of the rarest predictable solar events: the transit of Venus across the face of the sun. This event happens in pairs eight years apart that are separated from each other by 105 or 121 years. The last transit was in 2004 and the next will not happen until 2117. This image was captured June 5, 2012.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory snapped this multi-wavelength extreme ultraviolet image of the sun, showing the Aug. 1, 2010, solar eruption that blasted charged particles toward Earth. The Class C3 solar flare triggered stunning aurora displays and geomagnetic storms on Earth that lasted about 12 hours.
