Bases: sunpy.lightcurve.LightCurve

GOES XRS LightCurve

Each GOES satellite there are two X-ray Sensors (XRS) which provide solar X ray fluxes for the wavelength bands of 0.5 to 4 Å (short channel) and 1 to 8 Å (long channel). Most recent data is usually available one or two days late.

Data is available starting on 1981/01/01.
