Many Solar bursts and a C2.0 flare on 130204


The 1457 UTC burst had a relatively slow negative drift rate, compared to the garden variety type III. It appears to be a composite of 6 slow type III spaced about 10 seconds apart.

We had a C2.0 flare peaking at 1459 UTC, very likely the cause of this interesting burst package.

Many thanks to the Nancay Decametric Array Team at the Nancay Radio Astronomy Station of Paris Observatory, Solar Dynamics Observatory, and Lockheed Martin Teams.
