MLSO Facility gets a new dome!

MLSO dome replacement

After 50 years of operation, the Mauna Loa Solar Observatory received a major facelift this week. A new dome has been installed at the site. The old dome was removed Tuesday morning, January 5th, and the new dome was installed before the end of the same day.

Mauna Loa Solar Observatory

The Mauna Loa Solar Observatory (MLSO) has been operating since the mid-1960s, providing a nearly-continuous record of solar data to the community. MLSO data includes white light corona, emission corona, H-alpha (disk and limb), He-I, and photometric.

Data Calendar now shows solar events

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. Also, the calendar display has been altered to make it easier to read for those with color-blindness. We hope you enjoy the new features!

The MLSO Website has a new Gallery Page!

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!
