Abstract : Measurements of solar flux were made at L. G. Hanscom Field at 915 Mc during the solar eclipse of 20 July 1963. A 95% optical eclipse occurred at Hanscom Field. Data of the day of the eclipse and the day after are presented. An eclipse of 85.6% of the solar flux was observed. Two areas of high solar flux radiation are identified near the limbs of the sun from the rate of change of the received flux during the eclipse. A calculation of true solar flux is made. A series of photographs are displayed which were made using a six-inch reflector optical telescope. Observations were made at other frequencies by the Space Physics Laboratory. (Author)
