X-ray Sun

This portrait of the sun was created from data taken on 7 October 2015 by combining images taken at four different locations centered on the edge of the sun.

XRT performs this type of observation monthly. Along with the daily synoptic images, we use this data to monitor the sun as it progresses through the solar cycle.
