Scenes from Space #19

This image is composed of a montage of images taken by SOHO (the SOlar and Heliospheric Observatory) over the 10 years that the satellite has been in orbit. While I personally was not involved with the mission, UNH does have an instrument flying on SOHO. SOHO has provided some very valuable scientific data during its lifetime, including providing detailed data about the Sun's internal structure, solar atmosphere, and solar wind. In addition, SOHO images have been used to discover over 1000 comets as they pass near the Sun.
