The Sun is currently in a quiescent phase called solar minimum. We used Bridgewater State College’s (B.S.C.’s) Small Radio Telescope (SRT) to observe solar radio emission during this quiet phase and correlated our data to solar X-ray data readily available through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Previous observations made during a period of high solar activity (solar maximum) using one of M.I.T.’s SRTs showed that some solar radio and X-ray events were correlated, while others were not. We made observations during solar minimum and found one event where there was a correlation between radio and X-ray emission.
