The Solar Flare of June 1, 1960

Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, School of Cosmic Physics, Dunsink Observatory.

A SOLAR flare in the 3+ category of importance and of exceptionally large extension was observed on June 1 at the Royal Greenwich Observatory, Herstmonceux, and at a number of other solar stations in Europe. We have recently been analysing the film in Hα light taken with the Lyot heliograph at the Royal Observatory, Cape of Good Hope, which gives a complete record of the flare at 1-min. intervals under cloudless conditions.
