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.
Solar eclipses happen somewhere around the world every 18 months orso. This means that over the course of a six year period you wouldhave the following distribution. Year 1 First Quarter, Year 2 ThirdQuarter, Year Four Second Quarter Year Six Fourth Quarter.Therefore solar eclipses can happen in any...
Anything which is part of the normal landscape or sky (trees,  hills, birds,clouds, planes) usually looks smaller when they're  near the horizon. The reason for this is simple: stuff near the  horizon is generally more distant. Just take trees in the  landscape, or a road disappearing in the...
  The sun has a  magnetic field that gets twisted around inside the sun as it spins.  There are places on the sun where this magnetic field rises up from  below the sun's surface and pokes through, creating  sunspots.Sunspots are magnetic and often have  a north and south pole like a magnet...
The next total solar eclipse will be on March 20, 2015 but only  those who live in Europe, North Africa, and North Asia will be able  to see it.
Well ill try to answer the best i can because im not really sure  what you are asking.   Mayans believed that the gods were angry any time a lunar eclipse  would happen because usually it gives off a red tint to it and the  Mayans believed that the gods were displeased during this time and ...
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 of  the new moon.    In order for the solar eclipse to occur, one of the nodes of the  lunar 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...
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 - is  its direction (when the position of the Sun, in this case, is  projected on the horizon).
The next solar eclipse will occur on August 21, 2017 and then after  that 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, thus...
Nothing much, really. Birds and animals often return to their dens or nests as if it were night, and people often get overly excited. But really, there are no long-term effects. Remember, while _WE_ think that solar eclipses are very rare, they actually happen about twice per year. It's just that...
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....
around 6:00 cause it is 6:38 and it dark
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 the  planet, thereby partially (or fully) blocking sunlight from  reaching the surface of the planet. Since Venus has no moons, it  doesn't have any solar eclipses.
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...
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.
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 eclipse...
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
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.
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 temperatures...
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.
  you would weigh 148.9 pounds on jupiter.
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 wrong...
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 Delgadato Lake Tahoe will be directly in the path of an annular eclipse of the sun. All the restof 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 become  loose, creating fabric dust. Humans and animals shed hundreds of  microscopic pieces of skin a day, which contributes to dust, the  same as hair.  ...
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.
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 ...
Sometimes there will be come what is cold dark spots or cold spots  on the sun which is basically where a certain area gets cooler than  the rest of the area and during these cold spots the fuel is  building up more and more and as you know with anything flammable  the more fire or flame there...
30 of the units are reflected back to space, and the remaining 70 are absorbed by the atmosphere.
  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.
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...
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...
It's "yellow" because it's cooler than a type A star, which is the standard for "white" astronomically speaking.
Stay out of the Sun or sunblock.
The six reigons of the sun are, The Core, The Radiative Zone, The Convective Zone, the visible surface (The Photosphere), The Chromosphere, and the outermost region, The Corona.
Black sun. Whne the moon covers the sun, during a solar eclipse, the sun semes as if it wher black.
  No. It doesnt have a distributer. Its A D.I.S. set up. (Distributerless Ignition System).
the next solar eclipse will be the next time that we have a new moon and i got that from my teacher ms. butler at Redan middle in Georgia in the Isa so if you have any problems then go talk to her and my name is jasmine
A solar eclipse occurs when the sun, moon, earth are respectively in a straight line.the sun gets covered as the moon's shadow falls on the sun. So. we can't see the sun totally from the earth. This is known as solar eclipse.
because is a rock. it follows you often.I hate suns.
Solar eclipse happen only rarely because only rarely does the sun interact with the moon. Since the moon is closer to earth, the moon will cover the sun.
without ever hearing the make or model , there are 2 ways to do this first shut the end of cycle swith off. the second way is to take the screws of the back panel make sure you shut off the power to the dryer then pull 1 wire off the signal switch and tape it up real good breaking continuity at the...
im pretty sure its a solar but im probably wrong
stars i think let me now is you figure it out please
    A solar eclipse is when the moon blocks the sun's light from Earth. A Lunar eclipse is when the Earth blocks the sun's light from the moon.
its happens when the sun is BEHIND the moon it starts to get all dark.(: for safety you might want to use sunglasses when it happens!:)
they howl because that's what dogs do to keep in touch with each other when they cant see each other
  ==new answer==   In the universal language of mind, the sun represents awareness in superconscious mind, the center of our existence. We exist as spirit in this division of mind.   someday.
A solar eclipse has to occur when the moon passes directly between earth and the sun but usually the moon travels a little above or below the the sun in the sky.   Edited by Gelert: It is not "a little bit", but is around 5 degrees.We don't get a solar eclipse (moon obscuring the sun to earth)...
