Slide 5

How Big is the Sun? Around 110 times more extensive than Earth Or 1.3 million times greater than Earth Photo from http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/bestofsoho/bestofsoho.html

Slide 6

How does our Sun contrast with different Stars? Our Sun is a dwarf—medium mass Active stars range in size from supergiants to diminutive people Stars range from brilliant (supergiants) to extremely diminish (smaller people) Stars range from exceptionally hot blue all things considered (O class) to cool red all things considered (M class) Our Sun is a medium-splendid midget Our Sun is in the middle of - yellow

Slide 7

So is our Sun a normal star? No—most stars are littler and cooler than our Sun BUT Most of the brilliant stars we see are greater and more sizzling

Slide 8

Rotation High rhythm sun powered turn, EIT 195Š(Dec. 10-24, 1999) Movie at http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/bestofsoho/Movies/EITdec99/EITdec99sm.mpg At the equator, the Sun pivots once like clockwork Near its posts, the Sun turns once like clockwork Known as “differential rotation”

Slide 9

Sun’s Magnetic Field Winds up because of differential revolution Eventually structures circles and gets to be tangled Animation of how the Sun\'s attractive field winds up and circles out. Motion picture at http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/bestofsoho/Movies/dynamo/dynamosm.mpg

Slide 12

Energy from the Sun Nuclear chain response (hydrogen framing helium) Releases radiation (gamma beams) The gamma beam loses vitality as it skips around inside the Sun It is at last discharged at the photosphere, basically as obvious light Image at http://solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov/interior.shtml

Slide 13

Features in the Photosphere Sunspots Dark and little (yet brighter than Full Moon and large as Earth) Cool- - temperatures just 6,200 F (Sun’s surface is 10,000 F) Associated with attractive fields: one arrangement of spots is certain, other is negative Image at http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/exhibition/top10/top10_results.html

Slide 14

More on Sunspots Our Sun has an action cycle of 11 years Sunspots show up at particular scopes on Sun Bands of scope move towards equator amid cycle Images at http://starchild.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/StarChild/questions/question17.html and http://solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov/SunspotCycle.shtml

Slide 15

Solar Events Flares (Explosions of vitality on the Sun\'s surface) Prominences Coronal Mass Ejections (gigantic billows of plasma shot out from the Sun) Movie: Six months with EIT 171 (Aug. 12, 2003 - Feb. 9, 2004) http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/bestofsoho/Movies/171/EIT171sm.mpg

Slide 16

Solar Wind Blows charged particles and attractive fields far from the Sun Charged particles caught by Earth’s attractive field Create Auroras or Northern and Southern Lights Image at http://solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov/the_key.shtml

Slide 17

Auroras Electrons from sunlight based wind are caught by the Earth’s attractive field Interact with molecules in our air: oxygen and nitrogen make red and green; nitrogen can likewise make violet Northern lights are Aurora Borealis, while southern are Aurora Australis Animation of sun oriented wind affecting the magnetosphere and making aurora http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/bestofsoho/Movies/liveliness/Solarwind.mpg

Slide 18

Coronal Mass Ejection The emission of an enormous rise of hot gas from the Sun This arrangement of pictures of coronal mass discharges brought with LASCO C3 (May 1-31, 1997) at http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/bestofsoho/Movies/C3May97/C3May97sm.mpg

Slide 19

CME’s consequences for Earth Can harm satellites Very unsafe to space travelers Power issues Animation of a CME leaving the Sun, hammering into our magnetosphere. http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/bestofsoho/Movies/recon/reconsm.mpg

Slide 20

Activities Let’s go watch the Sun Sunspot diagramming

Slide 21

Influences on Earth Gravity Light (Radiation) Solar Wind (officially examined)

Slide 22

Gravity Orbits The Sun’s intense gravity keeps the planets in circle

Slide 23

Radiation Our Sun (and every single dynamic star) discharges radiation Radio, infrared, obvious, bright, x-beam and even some gamma beams Most of the daylight is yellow-green unmistakable light or near it The Sun at X-beam wavelengths Image and information at http://imagine.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/instructors/gammaraybursts/envision/page18.html and http://starchild.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/StarChild/solar_system_level2/sun.html .

Slide 24

Activities on Sunlight UV Man (or lady, or canine, bug, and so forth.) Observations of infrared light utilizing channels and mobile phones

Slide 25

Sun’s Radiation at Earth The Earth’s climate channels out a few frequencies Ozone layer shields us from some ultra-violet, and most x-beams and gamma beams Water and oxygen ingest some radio waves Water vapor, carbon dioxide, and ozone retains some infrared Electromagnetic range http://coolcosmos.ipac.caltech.edu/cosmic_classroom/ir_tutorial/what_is_ir.html .

Slide 26

Sunlight is consumed by Earth Let’s test what happens to the light. Action Time!!

Slide 27

Sunlight is consumed by Earth The Sun does NOT send “heat rays” into space. Some of its light is infrared, yet that is not the same thing as warmth. The Sun’s light is consumed by Earth (mists, plants, seas, rock…) By engrossing the light, we are changing it into warmth vitality

Slide 28

Sun as a Source of Energy Light from the Sun is consumed by the Earth, unevenly to: drive wind groups – which drive surface streams drive profound sea ebbs and flows drive water cycle drive climate Credit: NASA GSFC Water and Energy Cycle http://www.nasa.gov/focuses/jpl/news/effortlessness 20061212.html NASA picture at http://visibleearth.nasa.gov/view_rec.php?id=107
