noaa's goes-16 weather satellite takes its first solar images




nasa says the sun's 11-year cycle is approaching solar minimum, a period of time when solar flares are rare and coronal holes are the main source of solar phenomena. this particular one, for instance, caused aurora to appear in the poles. goes-16 was designed to monitor any kind of solar activity, t...



waves on sun give nasa new insight into space weather forecasting




our sun is a chaotic place, simmering with magnetic energy and constantly spewing out particles. sometimes the sun releases solar flares and coronal mass ejections—huge eruptions of charged particles—which contribute to space weather and can interfere with satellites and telecommunications on ea...
