Determining the state of the corona prior to coronal mass ejections (CMEs) is crucial to understanding and ultimately predicting solar eruptions.

The Sun Today is a single-page website dedicated to displaying the most recent movies from MLSO and other solar instruments. It is designed to display best on an HD display, but will scale properly for mobile devices. Set it as your home page and learn more about...The Sun Today!

The Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) satellite was launched in 1980 aboard a NASA Delta rocket. Among SMM's primary science objectives was the study of the dynamics of solar flares and the study of solar magnetic fields associated with the flare phenomenon.

The MLSO Data calendar is now color-coded to show days on which CME's were observed by one or more MLSO instruments. When a day on which any event was observed is clicked, the resulting data summary page will show a list of those events with details about each.

The Mauna Loa Solar Observatory website has a newly revamped Gallery Page to highlight interesting solar events caught by MLSO instrumentation. Each new entry will include a downloadable animated GIF file suitable for insertion into presentation slides!
