The target of this complex learn Institute used to be to provide an account at the most modern effects received in sun study. Bucharest was once selected to host it, as the capital urban of Romania was once positioned correct in the midst of the totality direction of the final eclipse of the millennium, on eleventh August 1999; in addition the phenomenon was once just about succeed in there its longest length: 2m 23s. this sort of overall eclipse is not just a really magnificent occasion which attracts the crowds: to astronomers, sunlight eclipses nonetheless provide the easiest stipulations for gazing the decrease a part of the corona.

Example text

The LASCO coronograph on board SORO also revealed the frequent ejections of small loops within the streamer belts. It was suggested that these "blobs" might be the source of the slow speed solar wind It is hard to know if the loops observed by Yohkoh and SORO concern the same phenomenon. A first objective is the study of the onset of aCME. Rere we have to make the distinction between the observations of an event at the center of the disk, which is very probably directed towards the Earth, and an event observed at the limb, which is unlikely to be headed towards the Earth.

EIT obtained an image of the Sun just four minutes after the eclipse ended in Ramnicu Valcea. The Williams College team for this experiment was headed by Jay Pasachoff, Stephan Martin, and Bryce Babcock, supported in part by a SOHO-EIT Guest Investigator grant from NASA. On site, the group included included Rebecca Cover and Misa Cowee. After two weeks of setting :UP our telescopes, electronics, and computers, the eclipse team observed two minutes and 23 seconds of totality in completely clear skies.
