The Sun and the Jupiter both astronomical objects emit radiation in radio frequencies and have much importance in the Earth’s atmosphere. We have recorded data of both Solar and Jovian signal on NASA’s Radio Jove instrument at 20.1 MHz. The simultaneous visibility of the two objects—the Sun and the Jupiter—is of much importance in this study. In this paper, we have done the comparison using the Jove receiving system on those dates especially when the Jupiter rises at nighttime. It shows that the intensity of solar radio emission is well above Jovian emission intensity. It has been observed that solar radio bursts are stronger than Jovian bursts. They occur usually when there are sunspots on the visible corona while Jupiter noise storms are more likely to occur at nighttime and so they are much prominently recorded.
