STEREO-SECCHI Heliospheric Imager (HI) Map.

The HI is a wide-angle visible-light imaging system for the detection of coronal mass ejection (CME) events in interplanetary space and, in particular, of events directed towards the Earth.

The Heliospheric imager consists of two instruments, the HI-1 and HI-2. The HI1 observes from 15-80 solar radii while HI2 observes from 80-215 solar radii.
