Solar Week: October 23-27 Celebrating Our Sun-Earth Connection

a week of Solar WeekWhat was your reaction to the solar eclipse? Did you laugh, cry, dance, cheer? Did you look through special eclipse glasses or telescopes? Do you have any questions about the eclipse to ask leading solar scientists?  Or experiences to share? This week, Oct. 23-27, post your sun-related  question for NASA Solar Week. Or you can ask a question on Twitter, or email.

Please join us with your after-school group or class for the Fall 2017 Solar Week, October 23-27– a lively week of online activities and current info about our sun for youth ages 10-14, including cool facts, scavenger hunts and games for a whole week. In addition, there’s a an online interactive message board where your group or class can submit a question to solar scientists.

Every fall and spring since 2000, Solar Week has provided a week-long series of Web-based group activities, detailed info and games geared for youth with a focus on our dynamic Sun and its effects on Earth. Participants learn about solar eclipses – like the one the US just experienced on August 21 --  sunspots, solar flares and solar storms throughout the week.

Solar Week is ideal for those who are interested in the solar system, the stars, or astronomy in general. It's also for young people wondering what it's like being a scientist, and pondering possible career choices. Participation makes for a fun computer lab activity as well. After doing the activities, participants can interact on the bulletin board with leading scientists at the forefront of Sun-Earth research. It’s a great place for anyone interested in our nearest star, the Sun!
