ESA Solar Orbiter Took Highest Resolution Image Of The Sun Ever Taken


Sun High-Resolution Image: You are standing in front of the Sun. The Solar Orbiter of the European Space Agency (ESA) has taken the picture visible here by eyeing the Sun. The orbiter said to Suraj on March 7 2022 – Brother, please smile. And Suraj gave this beautiful picture of himself. Science is not a joke, but we have put it in front of you light-heartedly.

The powerful Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUI) aboard the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Solar Orbiter is a spectacular camera. It took a full disk image of the Sun, a picture of the whole sphere. In which you are seeing the Outer Atmosphere and Corona together.

Highest Resolution Image Of Sun
Sun High-Resolution Image: This Is The Full Picture With High Resolution. In It, The Small Blue Circle Seen On The Top Right Is Our Earth.

Such a picture was taken for the first time in 50 years.

Another picture was also taken from the same angle. It was taken by the Spectral payload Imaging of the Coronal Environment (SPICE) mounted on a Solar Orbiter. This photo was taken for the first time in 50 years. He reached closest to the Sun. The unique thing about this picture is that it has captured the Lyman-Beta wavelength of ultraviolet light emanating from the hydrogen gas of the Sun.


This is a matter of happiness for the scientists. The issue is also a bit technical. What about the Lehmann-beta wavelengths of us humans? But the information is not necessary. You can zoom in to see the full photo of the Sun by clicking here on its original site.

Photo clicked from a distance of 7.50 crore kilometres

The Solar Orbiter of the European Space Agency (ESA) has taken this photo of the Sun from 75 million kilometres. This picture was taken from the EUI; if you zoom all the way, it will become so big that you will have to add 25 different screens to your laptop screen.

Then you will be able to see the whole picture at once. It took more than four hours to take this picture. Because it took about 10 minutes to make each of the tiles in this picture, this also includes the time of the spacecraft’s arrival at the perfect angle.

This Is The Solar Orbiter That Has Taken A High-Resolution Picture Of The Sun.

How many pixels are there in this image of the Sun?

If you talk about the pixels of this high-resolution picture of the Sun taken by the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Solar Orbiter, you will be surprised. There are 8.30 million pixels in this picture. Their grid is 9148×9112. It gives about ten times better resolution than any 4K TV display.

Different Gases on Sun
In This Picture, Different Gases And Their Temperatures Are Shown In Different Colors.

Different temperature, different colour, different gas presence

There are other gases present in the Sun. They also have different temperatures. To identify them, the SPICE payload is installed in the Solar Orbiter. It has taken pictures of gases of different temperatures. Here let us explain to you what temperature of which colour and which colour is related to which gas.

The purple coloured sphere, i.e. the Sun, is showing hydrogen gas. Its temperature is 10 thousand degrees Celsius. The blue circle represents carbon; its temperature is 32 thousand degrees Celsius. The green colour is oxygen; it is 3.20 lakh degrees Celsius hot. The yellow circle represents neon gas, whose temperature is 6.30 lakh degrees Celsius.


On March 26, Solar Orbiter will reach near the Sun.

The Solar Orbiter of the European Space Agency (ESA) will reach the closest to the Sun on March 26. It will be in the direct orbit of Mercury and the Sun. Its distance will be about five crore kilometres. During this, too, it will continue to take pictures and record data. The US space agency NASA is also involved in this mission.
