New Features on Website

The SDO website ( has two new features. If you follow the "Sun Now" link to, you will see two new selections. One is the ability to access the various images through the "Data Links" menu under each image. Clicking on that link will show a menu of image size and other options.

The other is the ability to jump to earlier versions of the Sun Now page through the "Browse Daily Images" in the left column. You can enter a date and Jump to that day's images or Jump one day at a time.

These features were added due to feedback we received from users of the website.
