Heliophysics Big Year
1 oktober 2023 - 31 december 2024
During the Heliophysics Big Year, you will have the opportunity to participate in many solar science events such as watching solar eclipses, experiencing an aurora, participating in citizen science projects, and other fun Sun-related activities. Heliophysics is the study of our star and how it interacts with everything in our solar system. The “Big Year” is a concept that originated with citizen scientists in the bird-watching community. During their Big Year, birders attempt to observe and study as many bird species as possible during a calendar year, and we are challenging you to do the same with our Sun.
