The Solar Orbiter launched on 10 February 2020 and is currently in cruise phase ahead of the main science mission, which begins November this year.

While the four in situ instruments have been on for much of the time since launch, collecting science data on the space environment in the vicinity of the spacecraft, the operation of the six remote sensing instruments during cruise phase is focused primarily on instrument calibration, and they are only active during dedicated checkout windows and specific campaigns.

A close perihelion pass of the sun on 10 February 2021, which took the spacecraft within half the distance between Earth and the sun, was one such opportunity for the teams to carry out dedicated observations, checking instrument settings and so on, in order to best prepare for the upcoming science phase.

Solar Orbiter snaps close-up and wide views of Sun blasts

The ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter captured multiple views of the sun blasting coronal mass ejections into space in 2020 and 2021.

ESA’s Solar Orbiter spacecraft has sent back its first images of the Sun. At 77 million kilometres from the surface, this is the closest a camera has ever flown to our nearest star.

The pictures reveal features on the Sun’s exterior that have never been seen in detail before.

Launched on 10 February 2020, the spacecraft completed its commissioning phase and first close-approach to the Sun in mid-June.
