Abstract: AstroGrid is the UKs contribution to a global Virtual Observatory (VO). This paper emphasizes the Solar System aspects of the 2006.3 AstroGrid release. The HelioScope service is presented, providing access to solar image data from the Virtual Solar Observatory, and to time series data from a variety of heliospheric and magnetospheric datasets part of the NASA Coordinated Data Analysis Workshops (CDAW) archive. Results from Helioscope can be streamed to visualization tools via PLASTIC. The AstroGrid Solar Movie Maker service allows the automatic generation of movies of solar images for visualization of flares, filament eruptions and coronal mass ejections. Data retrieval for specified events and cross matching based on time will be emphasized as essential for future Solar System VO developments.
