Solar Flares HOW DO THEY AFFECT US?
What is a solar flare? A magnetic storm on the sun A large energy release A glow, then… A huge ejection into space Electrons, atoms, and ions X-rays
More about flares Happen around sunspots Sunspots: Dark, cool spots on the sun Particle cloud reach earth in 2 days Occur in cycles
How do flares affect earth? Disrupt radio signals Disturb radar stations Can affect “cyberspace” Radiation storm can endanger astronauts Northern lights visible in more places
Ejection phase can disrupt GPS systems Airline flights Satellite communications Cell phones Fuel pumps Computerized cars controls
Satellite communications Financial transactions Electrical grid power surges Blow out transformers Equipment is hard to replace Safety of ships at sea
The 1859 solar flare Called the “Carrington Event” Telegraphs stopped working Northern lights visible in Italy, Cuba, and Hawai‘i
Can we watch them from earth? Not visible with home telescopes Or even with these telescopes Only high-powered professional telescopes
The Sun Our Nearest Star. The Source of the Sun’s Energy The Source of the Sun’s Energy Fusion of light elements into heavier elements. Hydrogen converts.
The Sun- Solar Activity. Damage to communications & power systems.
THE SUN. The Sun The sun has a diameter of 900,000 miles (>100 Earths could fit across it) >1 million Earths could fit inside it. The sun is composed.
The Sun Diameter is 110 times Earth’s Mass is 745 times Earth’s Its volume could hold 1 million Earths At the speed of sound, it would take 10 years to.
Ch Solar Activity. Sunspots Gases inside the sun move up and down due to convection and the sun’s magnetic fields. Regions of the photosphere are.
1 SPACE WEATHER SPACE WEATHER. 2 Causes of space weather Space weather is caused mainly by storms and eruptions in our volatile Sun sending potentially.
The Sun Structure of the Sun & Solar Activity. Parts of the Sun Core: enormous pressure & high temperatures cause the fusion of hydrogen into helium.
Space Weather Major sources of space weather ● Solar wind – a stream of plasma consisting of high energy charged particles released from the upper atmosphere.

SNC 1D1 – The Sun The sun and other celestial objects in the Universe emit electromagnetic radiation as part of the electromagnetic spectrum (EM spectrum).
Chapter 29. Sec 1 Structure of the sun People believed the sun’s energy came from fire They believed the sun burned some type of fuel to produce energy.
By: Lawrence Hu and Glen Madsen. Solar Flares are large explosions in the suns atmosphere that can release as much as 6×10 25 joules of energy (The joules.

Unit 8 Chapter 29 The Sun. We used to think that our sun was a ball of fire in the sky. Looking at our sun unaided will cause blindness. The Sun’s Energy.
The Magnetic Sun 1. What is the Sun? The Sun is a Star, but seen close-up. The Sun is giant ball of very hot, mostly ionized hydrogen gas that shines.

The Sun The Sun is a star Huge ball of glowing ionized gas… plasma. Gravity vs. Nuclear Fusion Gravity wants to crush the star Fusion wants to explode.
Chapter 20, Section 2 The Sun Anne Marie Scrudato’s notes borrowed by Rusty Sturken.
The visible light we see is only a small amount of energy coming from various objects. By studying other forms of energy, astronomers can learn more.
The Sun. Sun Considered a medium STAR 93,000,000 miles away from Earth 1.39 million kilometers in diameter (one million Earths can fit inside the sun.
+ The Sun. Sun Facts Makes life on our planet possible by giving us great amounts of light and heat Contains about 98% of the mass of the entire Solar.
Sun, Moon, Earth, How do they work together to help life survive? our sun.
Our sun is a star located in our Solar System. It is a huge, spinning ball of hot gas that lights up the Earth and provides us with heat.
