Prominence eruption

A relatively large and complex prominence eruption took place at the Sun's northeast limb on 23 October. The associated CME does not seem to have an earth-directed component.

Tiny... yet satisfying

Two C-class flares occurred near the southwest solar limb on 16 October. Though small, they showed some interesting features, and the associated radio disturbances were also observed by the radioastronomy station in Humain.

Neutron counts are maxing!

As we transit through the ongoing solar cycle minimum, the cosmic rays counts are at or very near their maximum value posing elevated technological and radiation risks to satellites and aviation.

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.
