The GOES-R Series Solar Ultraviolet Imager (SUVI) instrument monitors the sun in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) wavelength range. By observing the sun, SUVI compiles full disk solar images around the clock. SUVI observes and characterizes complex active regions of the sun, solar flares, and the eruptions of solar filaments which may give rise to coronal mass ejections. SUVI observations of solar flares and solar eruptions provide an early warning of possible impacts to Earth’s space environment and enable better forecasting of potentially disruptive events on the ground.
