The EVE sounding rocket successfully launched at 1 p.m. local time on Monday, June 18, from White Sands Missile Range in White Sands, New Mexico. The payload deployed successfully and all 18 channels of the instrument appeared to retrieve quality solar data. The payload was successfully retrieved following parachute landing.

2018-06-18 sounding rocket launch from White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. T-0 at 19:00:00 UTC (1 PM local). This video shows footage from the two onboard cameras. The total flight duration was ~16 minutes but this video accelerates some parts for brevity.

The purpose of this flight was to take measurements of the sun in 18 wavelength channels for calibration of spacecraft instruments already on orbit.

This video shows an active region on the Sun (with an inset Earth, for size reference) taken in extreme ultraviolet, or EUV, light by the Solar Dynamics Observatory.

The EVE sounding rocket supports the calibration of EUV measurements taken by spacecraft to make sure the data they provide are accurate.
