This is an amazing movie - how does NASA make videos of the Sun like this one?
Flavio Mendez
01:54:22
Thanks - Solar Dynamic Observatory
Kristine Sabino
01:55:26
Can we get a copy of this image to show to our students?
Rhonda Adams
01:55:36
These videos are fantastic!
Rhonda Adams
01:55:44
I would love them for my students!

Me too…what grade do you teach? I teach 5th.

01:56:30
Can't wait to share with my students
Rhonda Adams
01:58:54
I teach 7th and 8th science and this video would cover a lot of the physics curriculum for light energy. very cool!

Hi Rhonda!
Flavio Mendez

The collection for this seminar has three resources from NSTA. We will also add the slides after the program.

Tori
02:00:51
Great! Thanks!
Flavio Mendez
02:01:01
Amazing the size!
Kristine Sabino
02:01:04
Thank You!!!
Rhonda Adams
02:03:59
It's cool how it spreads out! Kind of like a convection current in the mantle.
Mike
02:06:15
the SpiderVerse?
Pete Schwartz
02:06:23
How can we see sunspots on other stars?
stephaniebernard
02:07:11
I was wondering about the Solar storms frequency?
Rhonda Adams
02:07:18
I read an article that solar flare activity is increasing. Is that true? And if it is, could that dramatically change our magnetic field?
jlenharth
02:07:23
How many satellites are currently used to study the Sun?
Flavio Mendez
02:07:38
Lou - tell us more about the satellites used by NASA to make solar observations, their location in space, for example, and the types of instrumrnts used.
stephaniebernard
02:08:14
yes thanks
Molly Carmadella
02:08:43
Was kicked out for about 5 minutes…sorry
stephaniebernard
02:09:13
How old is the Sun and how long do they estimate it will live if thats the proper way to say.
Rhonda Adams
02:09:30
And adding to that, does that change weather as well? I met somebody who worked for NASA one time and they said that the severity of weather is correlated to solar flare activity.
Flavio Mendez
02:10:20
That's a cool factoid - thanks Lou!
Kristi
02:11:19
I tried learning more about how sunspots are counted, but am still a little confused about how it's done. It may be too complicated to discuss in the short amount of time here, but if you can speak at all to that it would be helpful!
Flavio Mendez
02:11:51
SDO, STEREO, Parker Solar Probe
Flavio Mendez
02:12:47
Thanks Lou!
Flavio Mendez
02:12:52
Yes - thanks
jlenharth
02:13:00
great
Flavio Mendez
02:13:25
Awesome - nice flow - keep moving
Mike
02:15:05
great explanation of aurora
Dorothy
02:15:14
Beautiful photos!
jlenharth
02:18:49
fantastic satellite image
Rhonda Adams
02:19:26
Does it have sound? Can't hear it.
Maria
02:21:09
Great explanation of the effects of solar storms on our planet.
Eunyeong Lee
02:21:51
That’s very interesting.
Dorothy
02:23:37
Saw it on the Oregon coast
Maria
02:23:46
Great animation!
jlenharth
02:23:57
saw the partial here in NH
Don Boonstra
02:24:06
Saw it in Idaho. Amazing!!!!
Kristine Sabino
02:24:46
I love the visuals!
Rhonda Adams
02:25:23
The full eclipse was here in August 2017. It was so amazing!
Rhonda Adams
02:27:01
It was absolute chaos in Idaho though Don. People taking over fields with tents and traffic in places that don't usually see a lot of cars. It was incredible!
Pete Schwartz
02:27:52
What are cosmic rays? Is this just another term for EM waves emitted from deep space sans the sun?
stephaniebernard
02:28:16
ok thanks
Don Boonstra
02:28:16
Rhonda, we were very comfortable in my wife’s daughter’s back yard. I also brought a solar scope and we saw sunspots.
Molly Carmadella
02:29:33
Sounds amazing Don
Kristi
02:30:31
Thank you!
Quyen
02:30:54
