On March 26, the ESA's Solar Orbiter made its closest approach to the sun so far.

It ventured inside Mercury's orbit and was about one-third the distance from Earth to the sun.

It was hot but worth it.

The Solar Orbiter's primary mission is to understand the connection between the sun and its heliosphere, and new images from the close approach are helping build that understanding.

Solar Orbiter’s space hedgehog

The intriguing feature in the bottom third of the image, below the centre, has been nicknamed the solar hedgehog.

At present no one knows exactly what it is or how it formed in the Sun’s atmosphere.

Awesome solar energy

The awesome energy of the Sun can be readily appreciated in this sequence of images combining data from three instruments on the ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter spacecraft.

It shows the way a solar flare on 25 March 2022, one day before Solar Orbiter’s closest approach to the Sun, created a huge disturbance in the Sun’s outer atmosphere, the solar corona, leading to a huge quantity of the gas being hurled into space in a coronal mass ejection.
