Sometimes it’s okay to look at the Sun

solarstormwatch

 

…and volunteers on our Solar Storm Watch project have been doing it for years! The work they have put in has lead to the publication of two scientific papers so far; one on the distribution of dust in the Earth’s plane of orbit around the Sun, and the other on the size and shape of the huge eruptions of matter from the Sun that make their way to Earth and can create beautiful aurorae or in extreme cases cause blackouts!
