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

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
