Solar Images - White Light - ISOON
browse graphicThe Improved Solar Observing Optical Network (ISOON) project is a collaboration between the Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles Directorate and the National Solar Observatory. ISOON is a semi-autonomous, remotely commandable patrol telescope designed for studies of solar activity in support of space weather specifications and forecasts. ISOON can receive and analyze solar images and other data at a remote location -- in essence, forming a desktop solar observatory. ISOON acquires solar images in the hydrogen-alpha line (once per minute), in continuum (once every ten minutes), and in line-of-sight magnetic fields. The current dataset is limited to daily solar images in the 630.315 continuum.
