Nobeyama Radioheliograph Correlation LightCurve.

Nobeyama Radioheliograph (NoRH) is a radio telescope dedicated to observing the Sun. It consists of 84 parabolic antennas with 80 cm diameter, sitting on lines of 490 m long in the east/west and of 220 m long in the north/south. It observes the full solar disk at 17 GHz and 34 GHz with a temporal resolution down to 0.1 second resolution (typically 1 s). It is located in Japan at 35.941667, 138.475833.

Its first observation was in April, 1992 and daily 8-hour observations are available starting June, 1992.
