Image ultraviolet EIT 304 Angstrom (highest) showing the Sun Live! The Sun is 150 million kilometers from Earth. These images come from the SOHO satellite, which is orbiting the Sun.
The EIT (Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope) shows solar material at different temperatures depending on the wavelength. The images taken at 304 Angstrom, which gives a orange are approximately 60,000 to 80,000 Kelvin.
