How do you make a sunspot viewer?

Have students build a pinhole viewer to view sunspots. Take the cardboard box and cut a 2 centimeter x 2 centimeter hole at one end. Tape a piece of aluminum foil over the hole, making sure it is taut. Carefully use the pushpin or sewing needle to poke a hole into the foil.

Can you see sunspots without a telescope?

Using this method you can see considerable detail in and around sunspot groups. Pinhole projectors and certain types of solar filters can also afford a safe view of the Sun. Pinhole projectors usually produce a small and unsatisfying image, but they are better than nothing if you don’t have a telescope or binoculars.

What does a solar flare look like?

What do solar flares look like? Despite the fact that some of them can last for a rather long time, solar flares generally happen too quickly to be seen by the naked eye. They appear as bright flashes of light that suddenly “flare up” on the sun’s surface, and are only visible and measurable using special instruments.

REMEMBER: Looking directly at the sun, even when it is partially covered by the moon, can cause serious eye damage or blindness. NEVER look at a partial solar eclipse without proper eye protection.

What is the difference between a solar flare and a solar storm?

According to NASA, a solar flare is an intense burst of radiation that comes from the release of magnetic energy linked with the sunspots. Solar storm is essentially a term used to describe atmospheric effects that are experienced on Earth from events like coronal mass ejections and solar flares that occur on the Sun.

What is the helioviewer project?

The Helioviewer Projectmaintains a set of public APIswith the goal of improving access to solar and heliospheric datasets to scientists, educators, developers, and the general public. Helioviewer.organd JHelioviewerare two client applications that make use of the Helioviewer API.

What is jhelioviewer?

What is JHelioviewer? JHelioviewer is visualization software for solar image data based on the JPEG 2000 compression standard. JPEG 2000 offers many useful new features and has the potential to revolutionize the way high-resolution image data are disseminated and analyzed.

Why are my images not showing up in helioviewer?

The problem lies in the pipeline we use to convert that AIA and HMI science data into images that are used by the Helioviewer Project. The Helioviewer Project team is currently working to find and fix the problem. Images from other instruments, such as EIT and LASCO C2 are unaffected.

When will the helioviewer server be down?

The server will be brought down for maintenance in the afternoon (EST) of 25th January 2018. Down time is estimated to be on the order of a few minutes.
