The target of this complicated learn Institute was once to provide an account at the latest effects received in sun learn. Bucharest used to be selected to host it, as the capital urban of Romania was once situated correct in the course of the totality course of the final eclipse of the millennium, on eleventh August 1999; additionally the phenomenon used to be on the subject of achieve there its longest period: 2m 23s. this sort of overall eclipse is not just a really staggering occasion which attracts the crowds: to astronomers, sun eclipses nonetheless supply the easiest stipulations for staring at the reduce a part of the corona. The solar performs an important function in our very lifestyles. It was once liable for the formation of the Earth, and rendered this planet healthy to host dwelling beings, delivering the correct amount of warmth, and this for an extended sufficient span of time. relatively understandably, it has consistently been a first-rate objective of human interest, and extra lately certainly one of clinical research. over the last century, it used to be discovered that the solar is a celeb like billions of others; we realized for the reason that that it attracts its strength from the nuclear fusion of hydrogen, and we're now capable of estimate its age and lifestyles expectancy.

So was discovered a new planet with rings. Another well known occultation is that of Crab Nebula by the solar corona. It takes place each year in June. This is a radio source (Taurus A). During the occultation its radio emission is much weaker. Strictly speaking, a solar eclipse is a particular case of an occultation To predict an occultation we have to assume that the occultation is a simplified solar eclipse where the Sun is replaced by a star. Since the star may be considered at an infinite distance from us, we could replace the distance Moon-Sun by infinity and consider the diameter of the Sun ks to be zero.

15. M. A. (2000) SECIS: The Solar Eclipse Coronal Eclipse Imaging System, Solar Physics, in press. I~ Astronomical Institute ofthe Romanian Academy 75212 Bucharest 28 ROMANIA 1. Introduction The solar photosphere has 1x:en watched regularly since 1750; the patrol of the chromosphere has been made daily for the last 50 years. The solar corona, observed at the ground only during total solar eclipses a long time ago, has been observed with special coronographs since the '30s. However, the last three decades, beginning with OSO 7 and Skylab space missions, contributed enormously to our present knowledge of the solar corona.

Inside this surface there are almost only plasma and magnetic field of solar origin (figure I). The solar wind flows supersonically out to a spherical "termination shock", supposed to be at 60 160 AU from the Sun, where the wind speed becomes subsonic [7]. Beyond the shock, the solar wind is "forced" to continue its propagation in a direction parallel to the heliopause and to head for an open tail, which continues, far into the intersteUar medium. So far, neither the internal shock of the heliosphere nor the heliopause have been detected by the Pioneer or Voyager missions up to a distance of 50 AU from the Sun.
