Hinode Images of the Solar Atmosphere

"After its launch on 22nd September 2006, the Hinode spacecraft is working successfully. These images showing dynamic phenomena of the Sun's atmosphere demonstrate the high performance of the three telescopes on Hinode. One of the highlights is a dynamic eruption above a sunspot seen in the Ca II H spectral line, which was first discovered by the Solar Optical Telescope (SOT).
27th November 2006."
