Observing the Sun: 360-degrees and Up-Close
– presented by
Therese Kucera, PhD,
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center


We take the Sun for granted, but this dynamic, variable star exhibits a range of active phenomena, from sunspots to flares to coronal mass ejections, and Earth is embedded in its outer atmosphere. Dr. Kucera will give an overview of the Sun and solar wind, with a focus on how we observe them from various vantage points in the Solar System.
