Humain Radio Telescopes
A cat between the pigeons

The appearance of sunspot region NOAA 2749 ended a 27 day stretch of spotless days.

A new Topical Issue for the SWSC Journal

The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (JSWSC) has opened a new Topical Issue entitled "Space climate: The past and future of solar activity".

The magnificent "7"

A recurrent coronal hole shaped as the number "7" was associated with very high wind speeds up to 750 km/s, resulting in unusually high numbers of energetic electrons in the earth environment.

Deep is the minimum...

A new long spotless stretch, very low observed values of the solar radio flux, and very high values for the cosmic rays flux: Clearly we are walking through the valley of the solar cycle minimum.


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.
