Cinema EIT: Movies from the SOHO Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope

The following GIF movies, viewable with most Web viewers released in mid-1996 or later, give examples of the types of data EIT can obtain, and serve as inidcators of data sets that are available for joint analysis (e.g. during SOHO Joint Observing Programs (JOPs).

Needless to say, these are byte-scaled, quicklook images and are neither final data nor fit for analysis. If you wish to analyze EIT data, please read the EIT data rights policy and submit an analysis proposal.

EIT Fe XII 195 Å observation of an eruptive prominence/CME on the SW limb

A large eruptive prominence goes into emission, post-CME loops (PCMEL's) appear, and a proton storm starts (not so eaily visible in 512 x 512 versions here; the original data are 1024 x 1024).

Note: The MPEG movie was created with a beta version of IDL 5.1, and appears "squashed" by 5% in the vertical direction on some platforms. We hope the release version of IDL 5.1 fixes this problem.


EIT Fe XII 195 Å observations of active regions for JOP 018, "Sunspot Velocity Field and Line Profiles," 1998 February

There are some fascinating events both near the sunspots and elsewhere in the active region. We have to admit, though, that we're puzzled at how one is supposed to sort out sunspot- from other active-region-related loops and flows when the region is on the solar limb....
