NASA Researcher Finds Planet-Sized Space Weather Explosions at Venus
Researchers recently discovered that a common space weather phenomenon on the outskirts of Earth's magnetic bubble, the magnetosphere, has much larger repercussions for Venus. The giant explosions, called hot flow anomalies, can be so large at Venus that they're bigger than the entire planet and they can happen multiple times a day. View News Article (2014-02-21)


New Models of Weather Pattern
For a mathematician, Joseph Biello spends a lot of time thinking about the weather. But the UC Davis assistant professor isn't looking out the office window. He is using mathematical theory to build a model of the Madden-Julian Oscillation, a tropical weather pattern that influences drought and rainfall in the western U.S. View News Article (2005-12-12)


NASA's SDO Sees Giant January Sunspots
An enormous sunspot, labeled AR1944, slipped into view over the sun's left horizon late on Jan. 1, 2014. The sunspot steadily moved toward the right, along with the rotation of the sun, and now sits almost dead center, as seen in the image above from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. View News Article (2014-01-08)


A cloud-free Europe captured by MSG-1
As most Europeans breathe a sigh of relief as this record-breaking summer draws to a close, the extreme weather conditions experienced in recent weeks have given us a rare view of an almost cloud-free Europe, taken by Europe's weather satellite MSG-1, launched a year ago this week. This enhanced composite image was taken on 10 August 2003, at midday (12:00 UT) and shows a virtually cloud-free... View News Article (2003-08-26)


Imaging The Invisible: A New Look At Space Weather
How is it possible to image tiny particles that are normally invisible? What happens to our planet and its surroundings when huge solar storms collide with Earth's magnetic shield? These are just some of the questions that will be addressed this week during the UK/Ireland National Astronomy Meeting in Dublin. Our Earth is continually buffeted by a stream of energy in the form of electromagnetic... View News Article (2003-03-31)


Sun Sends Out a Significant Solar Flare
The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 5:12 p.m. EST on Nov. 5, 2013. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however -- when intense enough -- they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel. View News Article (2013-11-07)

Study indicates space weather may be to blame for some satellite failures
Is your cable television on the fritz? One explanation, scientists suspect, may be the weather - the weather in space, that is.  View News Article (2013-09-17)


Man-made aurora to help predict space weather
For more than 25 years, our understanding of terrestrial space weather has been partly based on incorrect assumptions about how nitrogen, the most abundant gas in our atmosphere, reacts when it collides with electrons produced by energetic ultraviolet sunlight and "solar wind."  View News Article (2010-06-08)


Scientists accurately simulate appearance of sun's corona during eclipse
The most true-to-life computer simulation ever made of our sun's multimillion-degree outer atmosphere, the corona, successfully predicted its actual appearance during the March 29, 2006, solar eclipse, scientists have announced. View News Article (2006-06-27)
