SolarWe plan to run a Solar Radio Telescope running at or around 10.7cm or 2.803GHz , we want the telescope to track the Sun from rise to set, in addition to the Telescope we will place a Video Camera on the same Antenna and will be focused on the Disc using special filters, we will upload on a regular basis the Sun's image, having a Video image together with the Solar Flux Reciever should prove interesting. Although this will be Weather dependent, a cloudy day wont present much of an image!
Radio emission from the sun at a Wavelength of 10.7 centimeters usually called "the 10 cm flux" is often found to correlate well with the sunspot number. Sunspot number is defined from counts of the number of individual sunspots as well as the number of sunspot groups. On the other hand, the radio flux at 10.7 centimeters is measured relatively easily and quickly and has replaced the sunspot number as an index of solar activity. The 10 cm flux can be used as a daily index or averaged over longer periods to trace out trends in solar activity. Typically the 10 cm flux is averaged over a month or a year although sometimes a 90 day average is made.
A Regular Weekly Report is written up titled a Preliminary Report and Forecast of Solar Geophysical Data for a summary of Solar events over the last week.
Information from the Solar Flux Rx will be displayed here.
