Latest Hinode Stories
The moon passed between the Earth and the sun on Thursday, Oct. 23. While avid stargazers in North America looked up to watch the spectacle, the best vantage point was several hundred miles above the North Pole.
A research team has finally found that the source of the extreme heating in the Sun's atmoshpere can be traced to magnetic oscillations known as Alfven waves.
At NASA's White Sands Test Facility in Las Cruces, N.M., a sounding rocket is being readied for flight.
A solar tsunami has provided scientists with the first accurate estimates of the Sun's magnetic field.
Astronomers at the 44th meeting of the Solar Physics Division (SPD) of the American Astronomical Society are shedding light on the Sun's coronal heating mystery.
NASA successfully launched its new Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) aboard an Orbital Sciences Pegasus XL rocket at approximately 07:27 pm (PST) tonight.
Whilst the most powerful earthquake since records began hit Japan in 2011, triggering a massive tsunami which devastated much of the country, space scientists involved in one of the 'brightest' international Sun missions continued working tirelessly at the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science in Sagamihara, Japan, to capture new data from our turbulent star.
Scientists are using Doppler techniques that may be able to take predicting space weather to a new level and understanding.
An international team of scientists have for the first time captured and identified images of an upward surge of the Sun’s gases into quiescent coronal loops, a discovery that provides one more step in the understanding of the origins of extreme storms in outer space, which are known to wreak havoc on satellite systems and power grids here on Earth.
On May 20-21, 2012 an annular eclipse of the Sun will be visible from within a narrow corridor along Earth's northern Hemisphere -- beginning in eastern Asia, crossing the North Pacific Ocean, and ending in the western United States.
