11.14.12 - The orbit of Hinode resulted in two eclipses on Nov. 13, 2012, near the time that a total eclipse was visible in Australia.
11.13.12 - On Nov. 13, 2012, parts of Earth will experience a total solar eclipse. The JAXA NASA Hinode mission will coordinate its observations with those from the ground, to produce combined, scientifically interesting data.
10.04.12 - Sabrina Savage, a research astrophysicist, has been named deputy project scientist for Hinode, the joint U.S.-Japanese mission to study the sun.
09.20.12 - By understanding the morphology, density and temperature of coronal cavities scientists can better understand eruptions on the sun and the space weather that can disrupt technologies near Earth.
06.06.12 - On June 5, 2012, Hinode captured these stunning views of the transit of Venus -- the last instance of this rare phenomenon until 2117.
05.20.12 - Spectacular images from the Hinode spacecraft show the solar eclipse, which darkened the sky in parts of the world yesterday.
05.17.12 - On May 20-21, 2012 an annular eclipse of the Sun will be visible from within a narrow corridor along Earth's northern Hemisphere.
04.20.12 - The solar cycle unfolds with seeming regularity every 11 years -- magnetic north and south pole flip -- now two upcoming papers show that the switch at bottom and top of the sun is not simultaneous.
03.27.12 - The X-ray Telescope on the Japanese/NASA mission Hinode has been observing significant small-scale dynamic events on the Sun.
02.02.12 - On Jan. 27, 2012 a large X-class flare erupted from an active region near the solar west limb.
12.19.11 - Another view of Comet Lovejoy's solar approach taken by Hinode.
11.01.11 - Five years after its instruments turned on, Hinode has provided some of the highest resolution images of the sun the world had ever seen -- as well as help solve such mysteries as why the sun's atmosphere is a thousand times hotter than its surface.
12.06.07 - Images from NASA-funded telescopes aboard a Japanese satellite have shed new light about the sun's magnetic field and the origins of solar wind, which disrupts power grids, satellites and communications on Earth.
03.21.07 - NASA released on Wednesday never-before-seen images that show the sun's magnetic field is much more turbulent and dynamic than previously known.
03.14.07 - A NASA Science Update at 1 p.m. EDT Wednesday, March 21 will be held to discuss never-before-seen observations from an international mission studying the sun.
12.22.06 - Instruments aboard a Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency satellite named Hinode, or "Sunrise," are returning extraordinary new images of our sun.
09.18.06 - NASA is preparing major instrument components for launch this September on the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Solar-B spacecraft.
09.13.06 - NASA is hosting a media teleconference to discuss its role in Solar-B, a three-year international mission to study the sun's magnetic field, at 1 p.m. EDT Monday, Sept. 18.
