HAO's Paul Bryans is featured in Science News

1999 total eclipse

On August 21, 2017, Paul Bryans and his team of scientists will be ready to aim a spectrometer at the sun during total eclipse in an effort to detect the effect of magnetism on certain wavelengths of infrared light emitted by the corona.
