A Screen Saver showing Live from the Sun to Your Computer

The screen saver made available by the European Space Agency now allows computer users to watch spectacular, almost real-time images of our Sun. The images, coming directly from 1.5 million kilometers away in space, will flash on your computer screen courtesy of ESA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).

You will be able to witness exciting events as they happen on our star: huge expulsions; sunspots, so-called sun-grazing comets, as they disappear forever into our star.

Requirements: Windows 9x, Macintosh and Linux.
