  • Yohkoh
    Yohkoh (ようこう, Sunbeam in Japanese), known before launch as Solar-A, was a Solar observatory spacecraft of the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (Japan), in collaboration with space agencies in the United States and the United Kingdom.
  • Solar Dynamics Observatory
    The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) is a NASA mission which has been observing the Sun since 2010.
  • STEREO
    STEREO (Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory) is a solar observation mission.
  • Einstein Tower
    The Einstein Tower (German: Einsteinturm) is an astrophysical observatory in the Albert Einstein Science Park in Potsdam, Germany built by Erich Mendelsohn.
  • Solar Orbiter
    Solar Orbiter (SolO) is a planned Sun-observing satellite, under development by the European Space Agency (ESA).
  • TRACE
    Transition Region and Coronal Explorer (TRACE) was a NASA heliophysics and solar observatory designed to investigate the connections between fine-scale magnetic fields and the associated plasma structures on the Sun by providing high resolution images and observation of the solar photosphere, the transition region, and the corona.
  • X-ray telescope
    An X-ray telescope (XRT) is a telescope that is designed to observe remote objects in the X-ray spectrum.
  • Solar Maximum Mission
    The Solar Maximum Mission satellite (or SolarMax) was designed to investigate Solar phenomena, particularly solar flares.
  • Sunrise (telescope)
    The Sunrise balloon-borne solar observatory consists of a 1m aperture Gregory telescope, a UV filter imager, an imaging vector polarimeter, an image stabilizationsystem and further infrastructure.
  • Picard (satellite)
    PICARD is a satellite dedicated to the simultaneous measurement of the absolute total and spectral solar irradiance, the diameter and solar shape, and to the Sun's interior probing by the helioseismology method.
  • Hinode
    Hinode (/ˈhiːnoʊdeɪ/; Japanese: ひので, IPA: [çinode], Sunrise), formerly Solar-B, is a Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Solar mission with United States and United Kingdom collaboration.
  • Helios (spacecraft)
    Helios-A and Helios-B (also known as Helios 1 and Helios 2), are a pair of probes launched into heliocentric orbit for the purpose of studying solar processes.
  • Hale Solar Laboratory
    The Hale Solar Laboratory was the laboratory of astronomer George Ellery Hale and is located in Pasadena, Los Angeles County, California.
