Richard Christopher Carrington (May 26, 1826 – November 27, 1875) was an English amateur astronomer who discovered the differential rotation of the sun by means of sunspot observations in 1863. In 1859 he and Richard Hodgson, another English amateur, independently made the first observations of a solar flare.
