Solar Flares

Please click the link to monitor the Sun, it will take you to the University of Bradfords own website which has sophisticated up to date Solar Flare monitoring programs which are directly linked in to the general solar flare probability scanner which is given on a colour coded bar. This is the general probability for occurance of a C-,M-, or X- class flare.

How does flare monitor work? Our agent program "SPIDER" connects to the SDO website every ten minutes to search for the new HMI images and download them to our server.
