RHESSI Observes the Flare over AR9906 - rotate view with times

Zoom in (with rotation) to solar active region AR9906 on April 21, 2002 with SOHO/EIT,TRACE and RHESSI data. RHESSI observes x-rays from this flare. The red contours represent the 12-25 keV photon energy range and the blue contours represent 50-100 keV.
