Where is ISS
This is where the International Space Station is Currently
dotted line means it is in shadow, continuous line means its in sunlight. It is moving to the right.
When you are in the dark, and ISS is in the light, (and close by) you can often see it!

"Gemini" is the Gemini North Telescope - they have a twin in Chile

The Sun - Driver of the Weather


The Sun - extreme UV - 171 ångström - 1,000,000 K

CCD Bakeout??? Not your backyard BBQ

The Sun - Continuum - about what it would look like
Sunspots near the equator are Cycle 23 spots - farther North or South are new Cycle 24 spots
What Does a Spotted Sun Look Like? (from 2001 - the last peak)

rotating sun from STEREO

The sun according to STEREO - a pair of spacecraft "ahead" and"behind" the Earth's orbit,
to allow more of the sun to be seen. In the EUV at 195 ångström (similar to the SOHO image)


The Area around the sun - Watch for CME and Comets!
Sometimes Planets can be seen passing through the view. The random streaks are Cosmic Ray Strikes
Use the Sky Map at Fourmilab.ch to find out what planets are wandering through

 

Solar Flux -a measure of the energy coming to us from the sun,shows how active the sun is
A is a moving average of the K,
K is a measure of the Geomagnetic activity (a good aurora predictor!)

Pyramids at Giza

The Pyramids - The World is round!!! (check it out during Hawaii evenings)
The Camera hasn't updated Since Sept 14, 2010 - a few things have been going on in Egypt...
Barrow, Alaska - The world is round!!!

Barrow is north of the Arctic Circle - Look at the Ice on the Arctic Ocean! Watch it melt for the summer

Egypt is close to 180 degrees from Hawaii - when it is daytime here, it is nightime there
and vice versa.

One of the many ports to take you to Antarctica! Hobart is where many explorers headed south from, and returned to. Mawson had one end of his communication system just to the right and uphill from the bridge.
