SOHO: New Views of the Sun
Caption: We are pleased to announce the release of a new and updated SOHO slide presentation. The 37 slides give an overview of SOHO's views of the Sun and include some of our most dramatic and compelling images. They cover such topics as the parts of the Sun, sunspots, corona mass ejections, flares, the solar cycle, and space weather. Each slide is titled and has an explanatory paragraph associated with it. This set was developed expressly for the general public and educators. So, as much as possible, scientific jargon and unfamiliar terms were avoided.
The low resolution version is suitable for casual viewing on the web. The medium level version is most appropriate for giving a presentation. The high resolution version is best for printing overheads, hard copy or slides. We encourage all who are interested to download and use the show.
An Acrobat Reader is required to view the PDF file, and can be downloaded from Adobe.

Special thanks to: Steele Hill for producing the slide set.
