Lightbulb 400-year-old Sunspots

Space Weather News for Feb. 15, 2005

Feb. 15th is Galileo's birthday. If the famous scientist were alive today
he would be 441 years old. Galileo is an important figure in the history
of space weather. Contrary to popular belief, he didn't discover sunspots,
but he was one of the first to study them using a telescope.

Visit ttp:// to view some of Galileo's sunspot drawings,
almost four centuries old, and find out how you can safely observe
sunspots using the same projection techniques Galileo favored. There are
some big 'spots on the sun this week so now is a good time to look.
Vot chelovek a!
