Alongisde the FTIR experiment in Wyoming, HAO scientists will also be experimenting with a newly available visible/near-IR camera technology which we believe may have utility for future applications in solar physics research.
Philip Judge, Senior Scientist at HAO, Claire Raftery, Director of Education and Outreach at NSO HQ in Boulder, and Sarah Jaeggli, Assistant Astronomer at the NSO's Daniel K Inouye Solar Observatory in Maui were guests on KGNU public radio in Boulder, CO.
On Sunday, February 12th, 2017, Prof. Egidio Landi Degl’Innocenti unexpectedly died of a heart attack in his home in Florence, Italy. Egidio had just returned from a scientific visit to the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) in Spain, working with one of us (JTB). There he also spent his last birthday. He had just turned 72 on January 25th.
Rosa Wallace received the 2017 Chambliss Astronomy Achievement Student Award, which recognizes exemplary research by undergraduate and graduate students who present posters at meetings of the American Astronomical Society (AAS).
Surface observations indicate that the speed of the solar meridional circulation in the photosphere varies in anti-phase with the solar cycle.
Global 3D simulations of solar giant-cell convection have provided significant insight into the processes which yield the Sun’s observed differential rotation and cyclic dynamo action.
In this NASA-led study, we report the concept of using near-real time observations from a coronagraph to provide early warning of a fast coronal mass ejection (CME) and the possible onset of a solar energetic particle (SEP) event.
