What do the first images of Solar Orbiter reveal?

The Extreme Ultraviolet Imager captured the set of images on May 30. In them it is possible to observe the appearance of the Sun at a wavelength of 17 nanometers. The images reveal the solar corona, whose temperature is over a million degrees Celsius, as well as the omnipresent mini solar flares, called bonfires. The photographs were colored later, since the wavelength detected by the instrument is invisible to human eyes.
