Observing the solar system

It was once thought that the Earth was the center of the solar system – called the geocentric model - Ptolemy

Observing the Solar System

It is now thought that the Sun is the center of the solar system – called the heliocentric model - Copernicus


Sun solar system – called the geocentric model - Ptolemy

Corona

Prominence

Chromosphere

Sunspots

Solar Flare

Photosphere

Core


  • The only star in our solar system, the sun, has many parts solar system – called the geocentric model - Ptolemy

    Core – central region that produces enormous amounts of energy. Nuclear fusion occurs here – that is when hydrogen atoms join to form Helium

    Photosphere – inner layer of the sun

    Chromosphere – middle layer of the sun

    Corona – outer layer of the sun – looks like a halo around the sun

    Sunspots – areas of gas on the sun that are cooler than the gases around them

    Prominences – reddish loops of gas that link sunspot regions

    Solar Flare – gas eruptions sent out into space
