Sun-Earth Connection: Eclipses, Explosions, and Space Weather Forecasts

In honor of the solar eclipse that occurred on February 26, 1998, The Exploratorium (discussed in the February 21, 1997 Scout Report) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum collaborated to produce this lesson on the effects that events on the sun have on the earth. The narrative focuses on coronal mass ejections (CMEs) which can have a tremendous effect on satellites and radio, television, and telephone signals. The site uses audio clips (RealPlayer) from physicists and QuickTime movies to supplement some of the written material.
