By Jérôme Diaz
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
SoHO Viewer is a simple application for downloading and displaying the latest images taken by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SoHO).
It includes push notifications so you can be notified by a badge on the application when new images are available.
It was quoted as “one of the ten best free applications to have on your iphone if you like stargazing:” http://www.networkworld.com/news/2010/112210-free-iphone-stargazing-apps.html
It appears in Mars 2015 edition of Sky And Telescope, page 70.
Images are courtesy of SOHO consortium.
SOHO is a project of international cooperation between ESA and NASA.
If you had like to see images taken by Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) please use the SDO Viewer application.
What's New in Version 2.6.3
Minor bug fixes and performance improvement.
Major disappointment in this app.
For some reason just prior to the transit of Mercury, this app stopped updating. It would have been nice if we could have observed through the app we could have seen the event. The app would update several times a day prior to the transit. It has not updated since.
