Astro Feb 9 2018

Today, we learnt about the sun. We learnt about how the sun came to be, the effects that the sun has on earth, like solar storms, which can cause electrical appliances to fail, radiation emitted from the sun that keeps the earth warm. We also watched a few videos that describes the various effects of the sun and how it can impact earth. We also did kahoots based on the things we learnt in today's lesson and last week's lesson.

It was intriguing to be able to view the sun up close with a telescope without damaging our eyes.
