Red sprite lightning is both mysterious and intriguing: sprites occur only at high altitudes above thunderstorms, only last for a thousandth of a second, and emit light in the red portion of the visible spectrum. Therefore, studying sprites has been
The unprecedented view was recently released by scientists at Big Bear Solar Observatory in the mountains of East L.A. Imaged by the New Solar Telescope (aka the "NST"), the photograph is among the first to be captured by the NST's newly equipped
It looks like we're no more than three to four months away from a complete field reversal," solar physicist Todd Hoeksema of Stanford University, said. "This change will have ripple effects throughout the solar system," he said. The sun's magnetic
