Pick of The Week

And the winner is... (November 26, 2003)

Hi-res TIF image (2.4M)

It was a close election, but here is the SOHO image that received the most votes (11,468) as the favorite SOHO image.

It is a composite image with three EIT wavelengths (171 as blue, 195 as yellow and 284 as red) combined to show solar features unique to each wavelength. The 171 filter shows emission from 8 and 9 times ionized iron at about 1 million degrees C, the 195 filter shows 11 times ionized iron at about 1.5 million degrees C, and the 284 filter shows 13 times ionized iron at about 2.5 million degrees.

Check here for the full election results and runner-up images.

Previous Picks of the Week

SOHO began its Weekly Pick some time after sending a weekly image or video clip to the American Museum of Natural History (Rose Center) in New York City. There, the SOHO Weekly Pick is displayed with some annotations on a large plasma display.

If your institution would also like to receive the same Weekly Pick from us for display (usually in Photoshop or QuickTime format), please send your inquiry to steele.hill@gsfc.nasa.gov.
