The SDO JSOC has experienced a disk controller failure. The near-real-time images will not be produced until the controller can be replaced. Stay tuned for updates
SDO Images are Available Mon, 03 Jan 2011 The JSOC is repaired, the pipeline is running, and the images are again flowing to our near-realtime partners. Just in time for the region with the large prominence that erupted at the beginning of December to come across the disk. Happy New Year, but better, Happy Perihelion at 1900 UT (2 pm ET) today!
