Solar EUV Imagery

 caption follows:
GOES-16 SUVI imagery of a large coronal hole on March 27, 2017, in six ultraviolet wavelengths: 171, 195, 284, 304, 94, and 131 angstrom.

The Solar EUV Imagery products will provide space weather scientists with images of the sun in several different EUV spectral bands. These high resolution images will reveal details about the structure of active regions, filaments, and solar prominences. Also of interest to space and solar weather scientists are the boundaries of coronal holes and how the entire surface of the Sun behaves during solar flares. Higher-level products made from these imagery products by the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center along with other organizations will provide early warning of potential radiation hazards, such as SEP events, flares, geomagnetic storms and radio blackouts. Currently on orbit are two instruments which produce imagery similar to what SUVI will be capable of. SDO-AIA has a higher resolution, but the SOHO-EIT instrument has a plate scale nearly identical to SUVI. Between these two instruments, we can fairly reproduce the L1b products which SUVI will provide (your colors may vary).
