Tracking sunspots is not an easy task given that multiple sources of data are acquired using a variety of different instruments. With the sources of data and contributors to this repositories quickly growing, it is increasingly important to have an efficient solution to analyze the photographs to record trends and possibly make predictions. CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) provides an excellent means of parallelizing the image processing stage and speeding up the analysis process. With more images being analyzed we will be able to make clearer, more accurate judgments regarding sunspots, solar flares, and space weather.
