The Sun

Parent Category: The Solar System
The Sun is the star at the center of our solar system. It provides our planet with light, warmth, and energy.
Anything which is part of the normal landscape or sky (trees,hills, birds,clouds, planes) usually looks smaller when they'renear the horizon. The reason for this is simple: stuff near thehorizon is generally more distant. Just take trees in thelandscape, or a road disappearing in the distance as an...
The sun has amagnetic field that gets twisted around inside the sun as it spins.There are places on the sun where this magnetic field rises up frombelow the sun's surface and pokes through, creating sunspots . Sunspots are magnetic and often have a north and south pole like a magnet. hope this...
The next total solar eclipse will be on March 20, 2015 but onlythose who live in Europe, North Africa, and North Asia will be ableto see it.
Well ill try to answer the best i can because im not really surewhat you are asking. Mayans believed that the gods were angry any time a lunar eclipsewould happen because usually it gives off a red tint to it and theMayans believed that the gods were displeased during this time andthey would make a...
Aztecs believed that if a pregnant woman saw an eclipse, her baby would be born with a cleft pallet.
What we commonly call a solar eclipse can occur ONLY at the time ofthe new moon. In order for the solar eclipse to occur, one of the nodes of thelunar orbit must be aligned with the sun at the time of new moon;hence, a solar eclipse doesn't occur at every new moon. Solar eclipse can only happen at...
Yes, our Sun is Saturn's star. You see, our planets, Mercury through Neptune, all orbit the Sun. So even if they have different natural satellites, like the Moon for the Earth and Phobos for Mars, they all have the same Star, or in this case, the Sun.
The sun will never blow up. The sun will died in 5 to 7 billionyears, but the process will be gradual.
There has not been any given proof of this. So it shouldn't be taken seriously.
Azimuth - not just of the Sun, but of any object in the sky - isits direction (when the position of the Sun, in this case, isprojected on the horizon).
The next solar eclipse will occur on August 21, 2017 and then afterthat date it will occur on April 8, 2024
Solar Sunspots, Flares, and Prominences are related. The sunspot is a temporary phenomenon on the surface of the Sun, and are believed to be a low temperature region extending outwards from the surface of the Sun. Their temperature is at least 1000 degrees cooler than that of the sun's surface,...
Sunspots do not explode, sunspots are cooler regions of the Sun's surface caused by what are basically magnetic field "tangles" stopping the convection that brings heat to the solar surface. When the "tangle" untangles or snaps back the Sunspot fades away as that bit of the surface heats back up. ...
Because the Earth is tilted further away (back) from the Sun.
No, the sun is not really on fire. The sun is just made up of very hot gases the are so hot it gives off light from heat radiation.
A solar eclipse occurs when a moon passes between the sun and theplanet, thereby partially (or fully) blocking sunlight fromreaching the surface of the planet. Since Venus has no moons, itdoesn't have any solar eclipses.
The sun's color results from the temperature of its outer layer,which emits light in the yellow part of the visible spectrum.Hotter stars tend to emit more light in the blue part of thespectrum while cooler stars are more reddish.
Solar eclipses occur when the Moon and Sun lie on the same line of sight from the standpoint of a terrestrial observer. Naturally, there are two types of solar eclipses: partial and total. The Sun and Moon have about the same angular size (they take up the same amount of area on the celestial sphere...
When the Moon begins to move across the Sun's face we get a partialeclipse. Gradually more and more is covered until we get totality.Then the Moon continues to move and some of the Sun is uncovered sothe eclipse is partial again. Also, the total eclipse is not seenover the whole Earth, only directly...
People who are in the path of the eclipse.
The sun produces its own light when it transforms hydrogen into helium. The moon gets its light from the sun. It doesn't produce light. The brightness that we see on the moon is a reflection of the sunlight.
I'm pretty sure it's a sphere.
On November 3rd, 2013 you should be able to see the very beginnings of a partial eclipse of a rising Sun. On August 21st, 2017 a major partial eclipse will be visible in the afternoon with 80% of the sun's disk being covered. 2045 is the closest date when Tampa will see a total solar eclipse.
It's luminosity is 90,000 - 150,000 times that of the Sun, so it'ssafe to assume that the total amount of infrared radiation willalso be more. Since its temperature is lower than that of the Sun, the percentageof infrared radiation should also be higher.
The next total solar eclipse visible in Texas will be on April 8, 2024.
The glasses distributed to movie-goers for a 3D film are not dark enough to view a solar eclipse. They are only for combining the images that the film duplicates onto the movie screen. DO NOT USE 3D GLASSES TO LOOK AT THE SUN . YOU WILL BE BLINDED! Sometimes, a planetarium will sell...
An eclipse of the Sun can only occur at New Moon when the Moon passes between Earth and Sun. If the Moon's shadow happens to fall upon Earth's surface at that time, we see some portion of the Sun's disk covered or 'eclipsed' by the Moon. Since New Moon occurs every 29 1/2 days, you might think that...
the west, it's the west for lunar eclipse too,and that lunar eclipse occur more often u ch
The sun emits all colors of the spectrum.
There isn't; it's a new (or dark) moon. You're standing on the Earth in the daytime on a sunny day. The sun goes dark for a few minutes because the moon is between you and the sun. Full moon is high in the sky at midnight.

About 2 million mph. Pretty Fast ! That answer may be referring to "coronal mass ejections" rather than the closely related phenomenon of solar flares.
The next solar eclipse will be a total eclipse of the Sun, visible along a track across the South Pacific including a few islands in French Polynesia, Rapu Nui (Easter Island) and a small area at the southern end of Peru and Venezuela. It will be on July 11, 2010.
They get released by when one of the dark atoms in the sun getsshot out or the suns inner atmosphere.
It is a one which is circular.
The diameter of the sun is about 64,938 miles (1.392 million km) wide.
Bearing in mind that the continent of Africa stretches some 8,000 km from north to south and crosses the Tropic of Cancer, the Equator and the Tropic of Capricorn it is logical to assume that there is a range of temperatures and not a single average temperature. Varying on the location...
Well, it is very low maintenence. All you have to do is buy it, (which seems like a lot of money, but in long terms it isn't) then put it in your selected area and there ya go!
Black absorbs light rays easily and absorbs all colors, making you feel hotter if you wear black. However, white doesn't absorb light rays and reflects all colors, so you might prefer to wear that or another light color such as lime green, pastel blue, or pink on a hot day. On the other hand, on a...
because moon is too near to the earth than the sun,that's why only chromosphere and corona can be seen
The Sun can burn your eyes and make you blind.
The path that the sun appears to take through the stars and other objects in the sky is the "ecliptic". The constellations lined up along that path are the constellations of the "Zodiac". There's no particular name for the path that the sun appears to follow around the earth . It does...
Dark lines of the absorption spectrum give the elemental composition of the chromosphere, information about the magnetic field and density of the surface. The peak of the continuous spectrum gives the surface temperature. The Doppler Effect shows the movement of the sun and the sun's surface....
Headphones emit some amount of electromagnetic radiation in theform of radio waves. This is a non-ionizing radiation which istypically safe. It causes some heating effect, but not enough tocause any type of long-term damage to tissues.
First off, you shouldn't stare at a solar eclipse at all, not even with sunglasses. This is because during an eclipse, the sun's UV rays are brighter and stronger than normal. During a solar eclipse, it becomes darker because the moon has moved in front of the sun, and therefore our pupils (the...
A solar eclipse is when the Earth casts a shadow on the moon (in contrast to a lunar eclipse, where the moon casts a shadow on the Earth). This means the Earth would be directly between the sun and the moon. So, if you were standing on the moon, the Earth would block the sun. this is totally...
Yes. All plants need sunlight, including those that live in swamps.
You can see Solar Flares in the Suns' Corona. corona (apex)
I think I can. I must wait 'till May 21st in Japan. ;) Can't wait. I'm gonna.
3.6 million to 24 million degrees F
The sun is the source of light that creates the shadows.
The next eclipse of the sun you'll be able to see in California is going to be May 20, 2012. Late that spring afternoon, all of northern California north of a line from Punta Delgada to Lake Tahoe will be directly in the path of an annular eclipse of the sun. All the rest of the state sees a deep...
it comes from the east
A solar eclipse occurs when the shadow of the moon passes over the surface of the earth. A lunar eclipse occurs when the shadow of the earth passes over the moon. Solar eclipses are less frequent for a few reasons but the main one is that the moon is much smaller than the earth and thus has a...
A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and earth. A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth passes between the sun and moon.
No. Dust is primarily made up of three things - fabric, hair and skin. Small particles of fabric such as carpets and rugs may becomeloose, creating fabric dust. Humans and animals shed hundreds ofmicroscopic pieces of skin a day, which contributes to dust, thesame as hair. 80% of dust is skin.
The Moon does not have light of its own. The light we see from the Moon is the light of the Sun reflected toward Earth. When you see the phases of the Moon, you are only seeing part of the Moon's lighted surface, because at any time exactly half of its surface is facing the Sun, and receiving...
6,000°c (11,000°f).
No. Seasons are caused by Earth's tilt and position towards the Sun.
It is as your question states, partial solar eclipse - the moon only blocks the sun off from earth partially. Total solar eclipse - the moon completely blocks the sun off from earth.
hello Michael pie they can be big or small
I hope not. I want it to be in arizona.
A solar eclipse is the shadow of the Moon falling on the Earth.
They are alike because they both cast shadows. A lunar eclipse is when the moon is blocked by the sun while a solar eclipse is when the sun is blocked by the moon.
The following was here before I added the links (see the related links). This is nonsensical but imaginative. The only thing here that is clearly wrong is the reference to centrifugal force. Anyone who knows physics knows that, TTBOMK, centrifugal force is not known to exist, but gravity is a ...
The entire solar eclipse can take several hours, and the path of totality can go a quarter of the way around the world. But if you're standing still in one spot on the Earth, the period of totality will never be longer than about 8 minutes 30 seconds.
it depends on the size of the asteroids
Sometimes there will be come what is cold dark spots or cold spotson the sun which is basically where a certain area gets cooler thanthe rest of the area and during these cold spots the fuel isbuilding up more and more and as you know with anything flammablethe more fire or flame there would be well...
30 of the units are reflected back to space, and the remaining 70 are absorbed by the atmosphere.
it gets smaller and goes away.
ultimately it came from the sun. Oil is dead life from the Jurassic era.
No. A blue moon happens when there is a second full moon. A solar eclipse happens when there is a new moon and it is right between the sun and the earth. But it is possible to have a blue moon and a lunar eclipse at the same time.
These conditions indicate a violent sun which emits charged particles to wards earthas Solar wind. These particles will cause Aurora on earth, damage our satellites, induce high voltage on transmission lines, harmful for space travelers.
Not if you are on the Earth, underneath our protective layer of atmosphere. For astronauts in space, it isn't THAT much of a problem, but the possibility of a massive solar flare that might give the astronauts radiation poisoning can't be eliminated.
If you are in the path of totality, a solar eclipse is more obvious; it gets dark in the middle of the day. But a total solar eclipse affects only a thin track across the Earth. A lunar eclipse is visible from the entire night side of the Earth, potentially half or more of all humanity. But it...
This information is incorrect. The 1959 total solar eclipse hadtotality go through the Northern half of Massachusetts, and Bostonjust caught the edge. Connecticut missed it. The last total solareclipse visible as totality, from Connecticut was on January 24th,1925. Totality covered all of the state,...
Sunspots are not permanent features on the sun but rather areas of dark on the surface due to magnetic activity. The sun goes through phases of solar maximum where sunspot activity is higher to solar minimum where there are less sun spots. It is not uncommon to see 200+ sunspots a year at solar...
A solar eclipse can occur only at the time of New Moon.
Answer . It's impossible to hear 93 million miles away - and there is no sound in space.
definitely not because if it got as hot as the sun it would burn your page your copying
There will be a number of partial eclipses, including one in 2017, but the next total solar eclipse in Utah will be August 12, 2045.
The sun's heat is radiated to the earth which enters the atmosphere. This heat warms up the surface but is then reflected back into space. But, as the atmosphere's amount of greenhouse gases is increasing, less heat is escaping from the earth's surface and is getting trapped. This results in what we...
