On October 3, 1970 the astrophysical rocket observatory K-2 was launched from the Soviet Union, designed to investigate the Sun in the region of short- and X-ray waves Gurzadyanet al. (1971). During the launching a series of X-ray pictures of the Sun was received, in the period 04 h 22 min to 04 h 30 min universal time, through an aluminum foil 5000 Å thick, covering a polistriol film 1000 Å thick. The pictures were taken by means of a pinhole camera under the following conditions: the focal

The picture was taken by a film of the UF-R type (Kalinkinaet al, 1965).
