Enjoy the 2016 SDO Joint Solar Eclipse!

Here is a movie from the flight operations team showing the double transit.
On August 31, 2016, SDO will perform the EVE field of view and HMI/AIA Flatfield Maneuvers. More on that later.

It took longer then we expected, but as of the end of the Friday work day, SDO is in science mode and all three instruments are returning science data. AIA is currently taking images with the nominal 8 images every 12 second program but it is running an older version of flight software that is affecting the Image Status Packet. We plan to leave the system in this configuration over the weekend.
It's been a long week for the SDO team and I hope they can return Monday ready to fix the remaining issues.
Thanks to all who helped SDO to return to operations.
