India's Aditya-L1 Mission captures first-ever full-disk image of Sun

New Delhi/IBNS: The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) managed to capture the first-ever full-disk images of the Sun through its Aditya-L1 Mission.

The images, captured in near ultraviolet wavelengths, "provide pioneering insights into the intricate details of the Sun's photosphere and chromosphere," ISRO posted on X.

The Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope or SUIT instrument on board the Aditya-L1 spacecraft captured the images in the 200-400 nm wavelength range, ISRO said in a statement.

Using various scientific filters, SUIT captures images of the Sun's photosphere and chromosphere in this wavelength range.

Sunspots, plage, and quiet Sun regions were among the features revealed through the photos.

The SUIT observations will help scientists study the dynamic coupling of the magnetized solar atmosphere and assist them in placing tight constraints on the effects of solar radiation on Earth's climate, the space agency said.
