Humain Radio Telescopes
Valentine's aurora?

A coronal mass ejection, unleashed by the Sun on 12 February, may arrive at Earth on 14 or 15 February and cause some minor to moderate geomagnetic storming.

An early solar cycle minimum?

Analysis of the most recent F10.7 cm solar flux density values hints at an early solar cycle minimum.

It takes two to Tango!

Some interesting prominences appeared around 27-29 January, with one particularly dynamic as it rotated over the Sun's northwestern limb.

The last C-class flare

The last C-class flare dates already back from 5 October 2017.


Fundamental Research

The STCE does Fundamental Research.

Public Outreach

Open DoorsThe STCE does public outreach during the STCE Annual Meeting and the Open Doors of the Space Pole in Uccle.

One of the highlights of the Open Doors is always a visit to the Solar Dome. A small introductory presentation is first given in the corridor of the SIDC. Skilled observers and space weather forecasters explain in laymen terminology what sunspots are, how they are observed, why these observations are so important, and how solar eruptions affect us and our technology. Then, the small groups of 10-15 people are guided stairs towards the top of the solar dome. There, the various solar telescopes are shown and their specific applications are discussed. Weather permitting, the visitors can also make solar observations using a projected solar image from the white light solar telescope. During and after the visit, there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions to the guides.
