The first reported observation of a solar flare was in white light, by Carrington (1859). In the modern era, good observations of white light flares have been relatively rare, but those that exist can be used to diagnose the properties of plasma in the denser part of the solar atmosphere during a flare. How the flare energy reaches the dense atmosphere to produce a white-light flare is itself somewhat of a puzzle; this talk will discuss some recent observational results on white-light flares, and a theoretical model for how they are produced.
