The Electromagnetic Spectrum. NASA's Great Observatories (Compton, Chandra, Hubble and Spitzer) and the electromagnetic thermometer scale. (Credit: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss)  The four Great Observatories, in order of their launches that took place between 1990 and 2003, are Hubble, the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, the Chandra X-ray Observatory, and the Spitzer Space Telescope.

Every day, the SDO sends NASA researchers multiple images of the sun, seen in each of 10 selected wavelengths. This one corresponds to 193 angstroms. These images are enhanced with artificial colors to more clearly differentiate them.
