The SIDC revealed

On October 6 and 7, the SIDC puts its cards on the table during the opendoors of the Royal Observatory of Belgium, the Royal Meteorological Institute and the Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy.

The central theme is the Sun which is the speciality of the SIDC where sunspots, space weather and solar research are part of the daily life.

We invite everybody to take a tour to get a taste of the space pole and the International Heliophysical Year. Maquettes, multi-media material and nice displays will show the role of the SIDC in international space missions.

We open the doors of our solar dome and show the telescope which is used on a daily basis to make sunspot drawings and monitor the Sun. We will show some aspects of the daily work of a solar physicist in our space weather forecasting center. We even have a nice extra: the Sun in 3D, spectacular images of the space mission STEREO.

General information can be found on the newsitem of the website of the Royal Observatory of Belgium and the space pole website.
