NASA Detects Solar Flare Pulses at Sun and Earth

11.16.2017
Two recent studies show how solar flares exhibit pulses or oscillations in the amount of energy being sent out. Such research provides new insights on the origins of these massive solar flares and the space weather they produce. This is key information as humans and robotic missions venture out into the solar system, farther and farther from Earth.

New blog: Parker Solar Probe

11.16.2017
Keep updated on the Parker Solar Probe mission on this blog

Proposed NASA Mission Would Investigate Where Space Weather Begins

11.14.2017
A NASA team is advancing a mission to reveal unprecedented details about solar flares, powerful eruptions that explode with enough energy that each one could power all of Earth for 16,000 years.

Parker Solar Probe Comes to NASA Goddard for Testing

11.08.2017
On Monday, Nov. 6, 2017, NASA's Parker Solar Probe spacecraft arrived at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, for environmental tests.

Return of the Comet: 96P Spotted by ESA, NASA Satellites

11.03.2017
Sun-gazing missions SOHO and STEREO watched the return of comet 96P/Machholz when it entered their fields of view between Oct. 25-30. It is extremely rare for comets to be seen simultaneously from two different locations in space, and these are the most comprehensive parallel observations ever taken of this comet.

Atmospheric Beacons Guide NASA Scientists in Search for Life

11.02.2017
New NASA research proposes a novel approach to sniffing out exoplanet atmospheres. It takes advantage of frequent stellar storms from cool, young dwarf stars to highlight signs of possible life.

September 2017's Intense Solar Activity Viewed From Space

10.27.2017
September 2017 saw a spate of intense solar activity. NASA and its partners had many instruments observing the Sun from both Earth and space, enabling scientists to study these events from multiple perspectives.

NASA Sounding Rocket Instrument Spots Signatures of Long-Sought Small Solar Flares

10.13.2017
During its short flight, FOXSI found the best evidence yet of a phenomenon scientists have been seeking for years: signatures of tiny solar flares that could help explain the mysterious heating of the Sun.

Solar Scientist Wins Top Goddard Space Science Award

10.04.2017
For his extensive research on solar activity, Dr. Nat Gopalswamy received the highest honor for space science at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

Parker Solar Probe Gets Its Revolutionary Heat Shield

09.26.2017
On Sept. 25, 2017, media were invited to see NASA’s Parker Solar Probe in its flight configuration at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, where it is being built.

Sun Erupts With Significant Flare

09.11.2017
The sun emitted a significant, X8.2-class solar flare, peaking at 12:06 p.m. EDT on Sept. 10, 2017. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the sun constantly, captured an image of the event.

Two Significant Solar Flares Imaged by NASA's SDO

09.06.2017
The sun emitted NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the sun constantly, captured images of two significant solar flares on the morning of Sept. 6, 2017.

Aug. 21 Solar Eclipse, From Ground and Space

08.22.2017
This composite image shows the Sun's atmosphere, the corona (as seen by the SOHO satellite) and a ground-based image of the Aug. 21, 2017, solar eclipse at totality. During a total solar eclipse, ground-based telescopes can observe the lowest part of the solar corona in a way that can’t be done at any other time.

SDO Views 2017 Solar Eclipse

08.21.2017
Image of the Moon transiting across the Sun, taken by SDO in 304 angstrom extreme ultraviolet light on Aug. 21, 2017.

Studying the Sun’s Atmosphere with the Total Solar Eclipse of 2017

08.14.2017
A total solar eclipse happens somewhere on Earth about once every 18 months. But because Earth’s surface is mostly ocean, most eclipses are visible over land for only a short time, if at all.

Day to Night and Back Again: Earth’s Ionosphere During the Total Solar Eclipse

08.10.2017
Three NASA-funded studies will use the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse as a ready-made experiment, courtesy of nature, to improve our understanding of the ionosphere and its relationship to the Sun.

ESA, NASA’s SOHO Reveals Rapidly Rotating Solar Core

08.01.2017
After four decades of searching, solar scientists have at long last found evidence of a type of seismic wave in our Sun, thanks to ESA and NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO.

NASA Selects Proposals to Study Sun, Space Environment

07.28.2017
NASA has selected nine proposals under its Explorers Program that will return transformational science about the Sun and space environment and fill science gaps between the agency’s larger missions; eight for focused scientific investigations and one for technological development of instrumentation.

Goddard Hosts 8th Annual Science Jamboree for Employees

07.13.2017
The Goddard Office of Communications and the Goddard Sciences and Exploration Directorate produced the eighth annual Science Jamboree on Wednesday, July 12, 2017.

NASA's SDO Watches a Sunspot Turn Toward Earth

07.12.2017
A new sunspot group has rotated into view and seems to be growing rather quickly in this video captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory between July 5-11, 2017.

Scientists Uncover Origins of the Sun’s Swirling Spicules

06.22.2017
For the first time, a computer simulation — so detailed it took a full year to run — shows how spicules form, helping scientists understand how spicules can break free of the sun's surface and surge upward so quickly.
