A program that downloads the most current images of the sun from the SDO satellite, then finds the most likely temperature in each pixel. Then it sets each of the images to the desktop background in series.

Basic Usage:
pip install sunback
import sunback as sb, mode='a')

New coronagraph feature added! Possible modes:
'a' - cycle all modes
'h' - cycle half disk modes
'w' - cycle whole disk modes
'y' - only coronagraph mode
'n' - no coronagraph mode
