Calling All Stormwatchers : BBC 2 documentary needs your help!!

‘Here Comes The Sun’ is special one-off documentary for BBC 2 investigating the nature of the Sun during this period of heightened solar activity – the solar maximum. The presenters, Kate Humble and Helen Czerski, along with a team of experts will explore how the Sun works, how its secrets could power our future and what the current behaviour of the Sun means for us. One strand of the programme will focus on Space Weather Prediction: examining the fundamental mechanisms that cause solar storms, the impact they may have on the Earth’s infrastructure, and how scientists are working to predict this type of solar behaviour, which is why they are looking for your help…!

The team are coming to film at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL), in Oxford, on the 28th of February and 1st March and are looking to recruit a group of around 20 UK-based Stormwatchers to come to RAL and be part of this programme! It is a wonderful opportunity to bring the Solar Stormwatch project into the public eye and illustrate the important job of every single Stormwatcher. It will be great fun and a good excuse to get together with other fellow Stormwatchers!

This is a great opportunity and we are hoping this exposure on a national level will encourage more people to get involved!!

    Yeah, too bad i do not live in UK. That would be a fantastic opportunity to get even more involved not only into solar science on international level. But also into my deepest passion which is astronomy. And i would love to to do whatever i can for my passion. For space.

    Hi,

    This is voyager1682002, I have not been able to logon to the Solar Stormwatchers forum (basically all Zooniverse forums) for months; I have sent e-mail to the admin. but no reply. I changed my passwords several times, still can’t login. This is the only place I can access, I hope someone could help me with this big problem. Thank you for your attention.
