Temporary Helioviewer services now online

Our colleagues at the Space Influences Data Center (SIDC) at the Royal Observatory of Belgium have kindly brought a Helioviewer server online at http://swhv.oma.be/helioviewer/. The webpage provides AIA 171 and 304 images taken once every 10 minutes. PROBA2-SWAP images (at full cadence) are also provided.

Users of JHelioviewer on Mac OS X can also use the Helioviewer server at SIDC to stream movies. Go to your JHelioviewer directory and look for the subdirectory “Settings”. Add these lines to the user.properties file:


Many thanks to our colleagues at the Royal Observatory of Belgium for providing their resources in support of the Helioviewer Project.
