Solar Sunday Basics: Spots, Prominences, Filaments and More - Livestream

Join us for this on-line event where we'll look in real time for prominences (often thought of as solar flares) and intricate texture within the Sun’s chromosphere (its atmosphere). We'll also provide an overview of how we observe the Sun in different types of light (such as red, H-alpha light), share details about the structure of the Sun, and show spectacular images taken during prior years. Ordinarily, we'd also share live views of sunspots, but our Sun is currently in its solar-minimum phase, and as a result, sunspots and other dramatic features are rare. Nevertheless, we'll still cover a lot of cool and interesting facts about our hot Sun!
