Paper presented at AGU Fall Meeting, San Francisco, CA, USA, (1996).

The instrument HSTOF of the CELIAS experiment on SOHO has the capability of detecting energetic neutral hydrogen atoms (ENHAs) between 50 and 90keV. We shall report on the ENHA flux derived from the data collected since launch and discuss the implications of this observation on the existing modfels of energetic neutral atom (ENA) production in the heliosphere.
