A major part of the Hinode XRT mission is to develop a better understanding of solar flares. To help facilitate this research, the XRT team created a catalog of all of the flares that XRT has observed during its (almost) 10 year mission.
These images are a visual representation of the amount of solar flares that XRT has observed throughout the years. To learn more about how these images were created, visit the 2015 August 4 XPOW. To learn more about how flares are classified, watch the accompanying movie.
To view more solar flares, and perhaps find your favorite, visit our recently updated flare catalog.
