The Solar Wall

October 28, 2015 | 12:00pm - 12:15pm
Museum in Washington, DC

Contrary to popular belief, the Sun is far from being a static object. Earlier this year, the Museum installed a Dynamic Sun Video Wall to show just that. Get up close and feel the warmth from this 7-by-6-foot dynamic video system showing the high energy Sun in action over the past 48 hours. Join senior curator David DeVorkin as he discusses how beautiful, high-resolution images of the Sun are acquired and the solar features they reveal.

Meet at the Museum "Great Seal", in the Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall on the first floor.

About the Ask an Expert lecture series: Every Wednesday at noon in the National Mall Building, a Museum staff member talks to the public about the history, collection, or personalities related to a specific artifact or exhibition in the Museum.
