Sunshine in the data

'Tis "Data Monday" again. Today, we've an example of where the radio-bright sun is showing up in one of the all-sky images.


Click on the plot to enlarge it.Note that this is an orthographic projection. Also, this is a "sky-view"... in other words, it is as if you are lying on your back in the middle of the array looking up. A few markers indicate some bright sources (Cas A and Cyg A) and directions (such as the direction to the VHF transmitter in Tromsø).

However, the one to look for is the very bright object at the bottom of the plot: radio emission from the sun.
