Keep the updates coming! I shared some of these images and videos with our 6th grade science class smile.gif

I too depend upon you since my Russian is lacking.

Koronas-Foton successfully photographs the Solar eclipse.

This mission is wonderful!

PS: There are also several video files published smile.gif

I like how the targeting system tries to keep the center of the bright surface at the detector center. Once the Moon bites out a bit the "average" center starts to shift smile.gif

Cool indeed! The slewing adds an odd sort of immediacy. Wish I could read Russian to fully enjoy the site.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

OK, I will try to help you (Russian is close to Bulgarian and I almost have no problems):

http://www.tesis.lebedev.ru/info/tesis_20090723.php

According to this publication the culmination of the Solar Eclipse occurred together with the strongest magnetic storm in the past 7 months.

http://www.tesis.lebedev.ru/upload/files/kp_20090722.png

The green color on the chart means normal magnetosphere, orange - excited magnetosphere, red color - magnetic storm.

G1 is a very weak storm G2 - average storm, G3 - strong storm G4 - very strong storm G5 - extreme storm.

So according to the chart the storm during the Solar eclipse is close to G2 = average storm.

I'm also able to read: The storm was unexpected. The Sun is very calm now and there are no spots on the surface. In the last few days there were no coronal mass ejections detected.

Thank you very much, Z! smile.gif Looks like the Sun is showing signs of coming out of this prolonged minimum, finally.

So great that they are releasing nice images and movies. When Coronas-F imaged an eclipse, images were next to impossible to come by.

And there's more! Looks like we have a LIVE IMAGE page entitled "Solnce Segodnya" which means "The Sun Now" in Russian:

Here it is:

http://tesis.lebedev.ru/sun_pictures.html

Several hints:

изображение фотосферы = image of the photosphere.

изображение магнитного поля = image of the magnetic field

изображение короны = image of the corona

изображение солнечного ветра = image of the solar wind.

изображение переходного слоя = ?? (don't know how to translate it properly)...

http://tesis.lebedev.ru/

I noticed that the main page has several important additions. The first one is "Прогноз космической погоды" which means "Space Weather Forecast"... There's information about
'Магнитные бури в последние 24 часа" which means "Magnetic Storms in the past 24 hours". If you see something like: "Не наблюдались", this means that there are no Magnetic storms observed. "Магнитные бури в ближайшие 24 часа" is a forecast for the next 24 hours. If you see "Не ожидаются" or something like that - it means that no Storms are expected.

This is the current forecast for tomorrow.

"Текущая активность Солнца" shows the current activities of the Sun. "Поток радиоизлучения" means "A stream of electromagnetic radiation" or something like that. The next two fields mean "Average planetary A-index" and "Average planetary Kr-index". I really don't know what this means. Maybe you will help me?

The next addition is "Группы пятен и активные области" - This shows the current status of the solar spots and areas of activities. If you read "Нет активных областей" this means there are no active areas observed.

Looks like the currently images are of SOHO. Not sure if this is temporary, but I hope so! They are very, very, very outdated compared to the images published on the official website of SOHO.
