This is the Solar Dynamics Observatory Mission blog. It will consist of mission status, news, and event updates.
This is an opportunity for you to examine the middle corona that is not normally seen in the AIA field-of view. The exposure time will be increased, there will be fewer AIA images, and lossless compression will be used to download the images. That means you will be able to bring out details in the middle corona by co-adding frames.
We solicit manuscripts on this general subject for inclusion in a Topical Collection of . The deadline for submission of statements of interest (SOI) with a tentative title, abstract, author list, and three suggestions for referees, via e-mail to is 15 June 2021, and the nominal deadline for manuscript submission is 22 October 2021.

SDO's 100's of millions of images of the Sun’s dynamic and dazzling beauty have captivated millions of people. Near the summer solstice of 2021 you should be able to use these select 10 as beautiful stamps. Watch for them!
This transit occurs while SDO is near the midnight sector of its orbit. That means the motions of the Moon and SDO combine to make this a short transit, lasting only about 30 minutes.
