LASCO Cornagraph Imagery

Below is the latest coronagraph imagery courtesy of the Large Angle and Spectrometric Coronagraph (LASCO) instrument onboard the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft. The LASCO instrument specializes in detecting coronal mass ejections (CMEs) as they leave the Sun following solar flares and other eruptive solar events. Launched back in 1995, the spacecraft has also been successful in discovering over 3000 comets.
