 Solar and Heliospheric Observatory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory' (SOHO) is a spacecraft that was launched on 2 December 1995 to study the sun, and began normal operations in May 1996.
Along with the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE), SOHO is one of two spacecraft currently in the vicinity of the Earth-Sun L1 point, a point of gravitational balance located approximately 0.99 AU from the Sun and 0.01 AU from the Earth.
Although sometimes described as being at L1, the SOHO satellite is not exactly at L1 as this would make communication difficult due to radio interference generated by the Sun, and because this would not be a stable orbit.

 ESA - Space Science - Home - SOHO overview
SOHO's studies range from the Sun's hot interior, through its visible surface and stormy atmosphere, and out to distant regions where the wind from the Sun battles with a breeze of atoms coming from among the stars.
SOHO moves around the Sun on the sunward side of the Earth, where it enjoys an uninterrupted view of the Sun, by slowly orbiting around Lagrange point L1.
SOHO and Cluster are also contributions to the International Solar-Terrestrial Physics Programme, to which ESA, NASA, Japan, Russia, Sweden, and Denmark all contribute satellites monitoring the Sun and solar effects.

SOHO successfully completed its primary mission in April 1998, and it has enough fuel to remain on station and keep hunting comets for decades, assuming the LASCO instrument continues to function.

SOHO observations are crucial and irreplaceable for scientists who provide advance warning of space storms that can cripple unprepared satellites.
No other satellite or group of satellites can fill the periodic SOHO data voids, experts say, which points out what could be seen as a lack of foresight in the overall space program, because SOHO was never designed to last this long.
After initial successes, SOHO was given a new lease on life -- meaning more money to pay the ground crew -- so it could observe a peak in solar activity during 2001 and 2002.
