Solar Weather Loops
By David Gross
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
View recent sunspots, coronal mass ejections, and coronal streamers observations from the Solar & Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) satellite.
View the different layers of the sun's atmosphere and how they are changing over time with the EIT (Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope) views.
View the sun's magnetic field and how it's changing with the magnetogram view.
The LASCO instruments are positioned 5 million and 30 million miles from the Sun and provide a further field of view for solar flares, planetary objects transit, etc.
Each loop contains approximately 30 unique frames of data. The EIT loops generally cover about ten days of observations. The Lasco loops generally cover about one day.
This app contains quick links to the Lasco C3 Transits web page and the EIT CCD bakeout history web page. The Lasco C3 Transits page describes which objects are visible at which times. The bakeout history describes when the instruments are down for maintenance.
This app is not affiliated with NASA or ESA.
There is a fixed banner ad from Google on the bottom of the loops.
