Recently, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) released images captured by its Aditya-L1 solar mission during a significant solar (geomagnetic) storm that occurred in May 2024. 

  • The remote sensing payloads Solar UltraViolet Imaging Telescope (SUIT) and the Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC), along with other payloads captured these images from the Lagrange point in space.
  • These images will help in studying solar flares, energy distribution, sun spot, understanding and predicting space weather, monitoring solar activity and UV radiation over a wide wavelength range, and also aid in the study of long-term solar variations and its impact on the Earth's environment.

Aditya L1:

  • It is India's first dedicated solar mission, developed by the ISRO, in collaboration with international partners.
  • It will study the Sun and its corona and provide valuable data and insights into the Sun's behaviour, which is crucial for understanding the impact of solar activity on the Earth's climate and space weather.
