Summary:
Scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research and other colleagues will aim new detectors at the sun's corona during the February 26 solar eclipse, searching for structures they've never observed before. The total eclipse over the Caribbean promises to be one of the most heavily studied in recent history.

BOULDER--Scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and several other research institutes will aim new detectors at the sun's corona during the February 26 solar eclipse, searching for structures they've never observed before. The total eclipse over the Caribbean promises to be one of the most heavily studied in recent history, as scientists make observations from a ground station in Curacao, a research aircraft flying out of Panama, and the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) satellite operated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The data they gather could eventually lead to better prediction of the coronal mass ejections that launch solar storms--the magnetic disturbances that play havoc with communications and electric power grids here on earth. The expedition is inspired by new theories and new technology. NCAR's primary sponsor is the National Science Foundation (NSF).
