Solar activity and cosmic rays
I need to know where I can get information on current solar activities like
flares and the such. I need to know the cycle that it is in currently.
Related to cosmic rays.
Here are a couple of places to get data via anonymous ftp: ftp.uleth.ca
Look in the directory /pub/solar (and below) for daily solar activity
reports. From a Unix machine you can also get the daily report using the
command finger firstname.lastname@example.org | more For sunspot counts, go to
ftp.sunspot.noao.edu Look in the directory /pub/solar I found these
sites very readily using the AstroWeb index on Mosaic. I highly recommend
Mosaic as a search tool.
