Title: Sun-Earth Viewer
Url: http://ds9.ssl.berkeley.edu/viewer/flash/flash.html
Publisher: University of California, Berkeley
Description: The Sun-Earth Media Viewer is a Flash-based interactive tool kit. The viewer allows users to watch real-time NASA satellite images of the Sun and the Earth. The materials are updated on a regular basis, and viewing the transformations of both the Earth and Moon over time is quite amazing. A thumbnail viewer lets visitors explore and compare solar and terrestrial data from a variety of NASA missions and ground-based observatories. In addition, the viewer contains video interviews with scientists and other experts. In the "Interviews" area, teachers and students can learn about auroras, the magnetosphere, solar wind, and the transit of Venus. Visitors can also look at specific clips within each interview for answers to questions like "What is an aurora?" and "Why do we monitor the solar wind?"
