well it's over a year and a half later now, what's going on with this site? still only horribly compressed "beacon images" and months old fits data files. awful.

Yes it's a little disappointing compared to SOHO, i'm hoping for better from SDO.

I have wondered that since the first idiotic post in the thread. There is a difference between one website and a true lack of information.

What do you want, a medal for complaining about something which 5 seconds with google shows to be totally untrue?

There's also a difference between getting a medal for 'complaining' and getting some helpful comments. And what's 'idiotic' about expecting full-res STEREO images on the official STEREO website? What's up with the 'let's make the ignorant newbie feel dumb' attitude all of a sudden?

Just my opinion. mad.gif

Nothing. What's idiotic is complaining that there are no images, when there are, which 5 seconds with Google would tell anybody. What's idiotic is not checking first, before labelling STEREO as awful. It would be impossible to spend more than a minute looking for the images, without finding them. So what does that tell you when someone comes here and complains they don't exist?

Ted wasn't describing newbies as idiotic. Two very long term members, with significant post counts should have the initiative and sensibility to go and check that these images don't exist before complaining about it.

But they don't exist

The images you linked to are available in 1024x1024 size images, STEREO has a 2048x2048 pixel ccd. So the images have been resized down, they are the same size as those from SOHO, also the latest image folder is 5 days old, SOHO images are generally available in real time, so my point still stands.

This image from SOHO was taken 30 minutes ago.

Let's all take a deep breath and pretend this little exchange didn't happen.

Just for fun I thought I'd mention that I'm working on a STEREO animation of hi-res EUV data for Science On A Sphere in collaboration with GSFC. This combines the two satellites and uses persistence to show something on the back side of the sun. Hopefully at some point I'll have something (e.g in a cylindrical projection) to show on the web, in addition to SOS itself.

Here is a test EUV animation. It has a lot of resolution in it, though I'm unsure how well this mp4 file plays in various browsers and such. Feel free to give it a try as it has hundreds of frames at 1500x3000 resolution of the cylindrical map. Each frame is 10 minutes and the file size is 66MB.

STEREO Sees Jupiter

QUOTE
No one has been able to observe Jupiter and its moons for some time as it is too close to the Sun, but that did not stop the STEREO (Behind) COR1 coronagraph from capturing it and its four major moons over a 30-hour period (March 15-16, 2009).

Pretty cool; STEREO is going to search for asteroids in the L4/5 regions. A long shot IMHO, but well worth doing.

Wonder what the odds are of finding an old Saturn upper stage or something?

Cool image lyford. BTW they are inviting the public to help find remnants of the hypothetical planet Theia in the heliospheric images. It would be awfully if I just had the time (or the guts smile.gif) to stare at the images for a little point of light(s) that may not even exist. Oh bugger!
