The first clear mention of a sunspot in Western literature, around BC, was by the ancient Greek scholar Theophrastus, student of Plato and Aristotle and successor to the latter. The earliest surviving record of deliberate sunspot observation dates from BC, based on comments by Chinese. Consider the dark line absorption spectra shown below for Star X and Star Z. What can you determine about the color of the two stars? Assume that the left end of each spectrum corresponds to shorter wavelengths (blue light) and that the right end of each spectrum corresponds with longer wavelengths (red . - Astronomers, physics teachers - this is your starry board for all things light and spectra!.

Some spectral lines are very sensitive to magnetic fields and show a neat increased width in umbra of sunspots. In fact it is a splitting of the lines but spectral resolution of my spectro is often insufficient to see it. Here is a spectrum with such lines (z) on the big sunspot of AR NOAA on ap Other lines sensitive to. Emission lines of hydrogen that are found in the ultraviolet part of the electromagnetic spectrum are formed by electrons transitioning from: any level to level 1 The energy required to move an electron in a hydrogen atom from energy level 2 to energy level 3 is.   Scientists used the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope (which, despite its name, is on the Canary Island of La Palma, off the coast of Africa) to observe a Author: Sarah Zielinski. Spectra is a free spectral analysis package. It's easy to download and easy to use. Fourier Spectral Analysis provides links to information related to the spectral analysis part of this activity. A Simple Analysis of Historical Sunspot Data describes a similar analysis with Mathematica.

  We present plots, which show the comparison of synthetic spectra and observed Arcturus and Sunspot umbral spectra for all atomic lines likely to be observable in high resolution infrared spectra.   The spectra show bands of lines ; according to Secchi there are shaded bands, but a more powerful spectroscope shows multitudes of fine lines. The spectra resem- ble somewhat the spectrum of a sun spot, and Secchi has advanced the theory that these stars are covered in great part by spots like those of the sun.   A field of force that is generated by electric currents. The Sun's average large-scale magnetic field, like that of the Earth, exhibits a north and a south pole linked by lines of magnetic force. more!
