The Sun releases large amounts of magnetic energy in the form of X-rays, EUV (Extreme ultraviolet), radio waves and high energy particles regularly. This kind of radiation bursts can threaten space and ground based technological infrastructure. Hence it is important to monitor solar activity to be prepared for potential threats.

The main purpose of this project is to provide near real-time information on solar activity and active regions. It will be completely powered by SunPy, and will be accessible to a wide variety of users. It will serve, among other things, active region information, full solar disk images etc.
