Exciting press for SWAP

SWAP was recently featured in two ESA stories! SWAP took this week’s Space Science Image of the Week. The image is from 25 July 2014 and is reproduced below. It shows a large coronal-fan structure on the left side of the Sun.

No Clues from Comet ISON

Comet ISON raced past the Sun on November 28, but left no clues about its structure — or the structure of the solar corona — for extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) telescopes like SWAP that had been turned towards the unique comet in the hope of capturing images of its passage through perihelion.

In just a few hours, Comet ISON will whip past the surface of the sun at hundreds of kilometers per second, and PROBA2 is waiting to capture its passage through perihelion.
