P1882: Solar Astronomy: The Science of Staring at the Sun in Splash! Fall 2011 (Oct. 29 - 30, 2011)
This is a class where you get to learn about, talk about, and even look at the closest star to us - our very own Sun. We will spend the first half of the class discussing what makes the Sun shine and what causes some of its amazing properties. We will also look at some images from NASA that show the Sun in the parts of the spectrum that we cannot even see. In the second half, we will look at the Sun using special telescopes and filters to explore what we can see, and we will relate it to what we learned earlier in class. Hopefully, by the end of this class you will understand and witness the many strange and wonderful phenomena that comprise our Sun.
