Description : 2 covers with Wallops Island post stamp. Solwind was destroyed on 13 September 1985, when an ASAT missile air-launched by a F-15 fighter hit the satellite. In 1985 the satellite suffered degradation of its batteries, leading to repeated temporary shut downs. Additionally, the last of three data recorders had failed. This lead to largely reduced operations with only two instruments producing valuable data. Therefore the satellite was selected as a target for a test of the ASAT (ASM-135) anti satellite missile, although it was still producing important coronal research.
