sun's deep interior revealed by new computer model;
research provides clues to the inner dynamics of stars
may 28, 2007
boulder—a new computer model simulates convection patterns in the deep interior of the sun in unprecedented detail. the patterns, known as giant cells, play a critical role in solar variability, influencing magnetic storms that take aim at earth.
the model was developed by a team of scientists led by mark miesch of the national center for atmospheric research (ncar).
"this model provides us with an unprecedented view of how the solar interior works," says miesch, a scientist in ncar's high altitude observatory. "it opens a window on a number of important solar processes, including the delicate balance of forces that causes the sun's equator to rotate faster than its poles."
the team, which has submitted its findings to the astrophysical journal, will present the research at the american astronomical society meeting in honolulu on monday, may 28.
"this is our first indication of what the chaotic interior of a star looks like," miesch explains. "stars are the building blocks of the universe, and understanding what goes on within them is critical to understanding diverse aspects of astrophysics."

an interesting article posted by canada.com:
despite this clear and repeated correlation, the measured variations in incoming solar energy were, on their own, not sufficient to cause the climate changes we have observed in our proxies. in addition, even though the sun is brighter now than at any time in the past 8,000 years, the increase in direct solar input is not calculated to be sufficient to cause the past century's modest warming on its own. there had to be an amplifier of some sort for the sun to be a primary driver of climate change.
indeed, that is precisely what has been discovered. in a series of groundbreaking scientific papers starting in 2002, veizer, shaviv, carslaw, and most recently svensmark et al., have collectively demonstrated that as the output of the sun varies, and with it, our star's protective solar wind, varying amounts of galactic cosmic rays from deep space are able to enter our solar system and penetrate the earth's atmosphere. these cosmic rays enhance cloud formation which, overall, has a cooling effect on the planet. when the sun's energy output is greater, not only does the earth warm slightly due to direct solar heating, but the stronger solar wind generated during these "high sun" periods blocks many of the cosmic rays from entering our atmosphere. cloud cover decreases and the earth warms still more.
New Sunspot Wows Observers
be well, be love.
sunspot 963: over the weekend a new sunspot emerged and "it is a beauty," says gianluca valentini of rimini, italy, who photographed the active region this morning:
the sunspot's two dark cores are each larger than earth, and they are connected by an unstable magnetic field that crackles with c-class solar flares. the eruptions have been entertaining onlookers. "i watched in amazement for hours as the magnetic loops swayed back and forth," says larry alvarez of flower mound, texas. he made a movie of the action using his solarmax90 solar telescope. click on the snapshot to watch:

meanwhile in zanesville, ohio, the sunspot almost made artist erika rix late for her brother's wedding. "i just couldn't tear my eyes away from the eyepiece," she explains. "one eruption reminded me of a rock plopping in the water." using strathmore paper and white conte' crayon, erika sketched what she saw: image. "as a last minute gift idea, i framed the first sketch of this sequence and gave it as a wedding present....starting their new lives together with a bang."
the show continued on july 8th when the international space station flew in front of the sun with sunspot 963 as backdrop:

david lerner took the above photo from an abandoned driving range near vincetown, new jersey. "i saw something flash across the screen," he says. "i opened up the video file and was thrilled to see i had captured both the iss and sunspot 963. imagine my delight to later discover i captured 3 frames of the space station passing by."

moving to the rhythm of the sun
17 august 2007
scientists from the ulysses mission have proven that sounds generated deep inside the sun cause the earth to shake and vibrate in sympathy. they have found that earth’s magnetic field, atmosphere and terrestrial systems, all take part in this cosmic sing-along.
david thomson and louis lanzerotti, team members of the hiscale experiment, on board ulysses, together with colleagues frank vernon, marc lessard and lindsay smith, present evidence that proves that earth moves to the rhythm of the sun. they show that distinct, isolated tones, predicted to be generated by pressure and gravity waves in the sun, are present in a wide variety of terrestrial systems.
using highly sophisticated statistical techniques, thomson and colleagues have discovered these same, distinct tones emitted by the sun, in seismic data here on earth. they have also found that earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere, and even voltages induced on ocean cables, are all taking part in this cosmic sing-along.
although these tones are all around us, it would not be possible for us to hear them, even if we listened very closely. their pitch is too low for the human ear, typically 100-5000 microhertz (1 microhertz corresponds to 1 vibration every 278 hours). this is more than 12 octaves below the lowest note audible to humans. for comparison, the note to which orchestras tune their instruments (a above middle c on a piano) corresponds to 440 hertz.

solar logos and helioseismology depicted in crop circle formations
by kris sherwood
'let there be light'
nearly every year since crop circles began appearing in the english landscape what can be seen as solar symbols, conceptual representations of 'the sun as god', and aspects of solar physics have been found referenced in the designs of many formations that have been considered to be created by the source of the genuine crop circle phenomenon. 'solar logos' has been a recurring theme that my research partner, and husband, ed sherwood first observed in 1990 and later made me aware of when we began our mutual research in 1995. since then in my own research into discovering and deciphering what 'messages' are being stated in authentic crop circle symbols, i have continued to discover more extraordinary connections to solar metaphors appearing repeatedly in the formations, including precise depictions of current understandings of helioseismology, the science of solar seismology, which i observed in some of the most complex crop circle pictograms of 2000.
ed has long known that one of the major references repeatedly being stated in the formations is to the various principals of physics that are instrumental in their creation. layered into these brilliantly conceived designs are also symbolic references indicating the 'intelligence' that is behind their ingenious crafting. included in some of ed's as yet unpublished research is the fact that he has long known and understood the role solar activity and cycles play in genuine crop circle creation, and he has monitored and observed the effects of the sun (and planets) in the crop circle fields. he has been giving this information in talk presentations and sharing it with researchers since discovering it in autumn of 1991, and is currently working on several projects to document this research. i am grateful for and acknowledge the insights ed's research has offered toward my further understanding and ability to identify the information manifesting in the formations. our individual research overlaps so much at times and to fully make a point, the other's contributions occasionally have to be mentioned and described in the context. with that understanding, i will try to focus in this article on particular observations i've made about certain crop circle formations that revealed the remarkable statements they were making about the sun and its theoretical and physical realities, while adding further to the body of corroborating evidence that solar symbols have continued to appear in authentic formations yearly through the current year of 2001.
because the sun is literally our life sustaining energy source, it is the obvious symbol to be used to represent the creator, or 'god'; whatever that means to you individually. worldwide cultures throughout the millennia have metaphorised this universal concept as the sun, and the genuine crop circle phenomenon, the biblically proportioned spiritual manifestation of these historic times, has continued to carry on this tradition. the urgent need to perceive our role in a cocreated reality seems to have reached a critical mass and that the creation force is making itself known with a message for all.
way cool... ;-)

sept. 18, 2007: "we've never seen anything quite like it," says solar physicist lika guhathakurta from nasa headquarters.
last week she sat in an audience of nearly two hundred colleagues at the "living with a star" workshop in boulder, colorado, and watched in amazement as saku tsuneta of japan played a movie of sunspot 10926 breaking through the turbulent surface of the sun. before their very eyes an object as big as a planet materialized, and no one was prepared for the form it took.
"it looks like a prehistoric trilobite," said marc de rosa, a scientist from lockheed martin's solar and astrophysics laboratory in palo alto, calif. "to me it seemed more like cellular mitosis in which duplicated chromosomes self-assemble into two daughter cells," countered guhathakurta.
way cool is putting it lightly, how about awesome!!!
out of darkness comes light! is what it reminds me of when that sun spot pops up from the negative polarity. inteligent infinity becoming individuality in pure energy
