Larry Zanetti (NOAA)Viewing the solar disc and observing sun spots has been going on for centuries. One major historical event was the great Carrington event of 1859, where gigantic sun spots were observed and shortly afterward aurora observed near the equator. We will walk through work done in Boulder, CO in the 1940's with ground observatories and progress to the present.
