The TRACE spacecraft was launched on 1 April and all systems are functioning as designed. The initial outgassing period will conclude on 20 April and the science program will then begin. TRACE is a UV-EUV imager with one arc second spatial resolution and is capable of taking images with a cadence as high as two seconds. We will present images and image sequences. We hope to present initial comparisons of magnetic evolution and transition region and coronal brightenings.
