Interactive 3D model of Solar System Planets and Night Sky Space Science - ESA makes the Sun available to everyone A mega-filament erupts on the Sun as seen on JHelioviwer ESA makes the Sun available to everyone 14 December 2010 New software developed by ESA makes available online to everyone, everywhere at anytime, the entire library of images from the SOHO solar and heliospheric observatory. Just download the viewer and begin exploring the Sun. A solar prominence in JHelioviewer JHelioviewer is new visualisation software that enables everyone to explore the Sun. More than a million images from SOHO can already be accessed, and new images from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory are being added every day. A prominence arcs up from the solar surface. Using this new software, users can create their own movies of the Sun, colour the images as they wish, and image-process the movies in real time. “We wanted to make it easy to view solar images from different observatories and instruments, and to make it easy to make movies,” says Daniel Müller, ESA SOHO Deputy Project Scientist.
