The Solar Orbiter spacecraft will make its closest approach to the sun on Saturday (March 26), passing at about one third of the sun-Earth distance. And we can expect some fabulous new record-breaking images to follow soon!
The daring European mission (with contribution from NASA), will look at the sun from a distance of “only” 30 million miles (48.3 million km) on Saturday morning at 7:50 a.m. EDT (1150 GMT). Doing that, the probe is set to break its own previous record for the closest images of the sun ever taken.
While NASA’s Parker Solar Probe dives even closer toward the star, within a few million miles from its surface, the environment it faces is so hot that it can’t carry a sun-facing camera. The job of the sun’s best ever close-up photographer therefore belongs to Solar Orbiter.
