"Strong Solar Farside Activity !"
> Space Weather News for Nov. 26, 2010
SOLAR FARSIDE ACTIVITY: The Earth-facing side of the sun is relatively
quiet, but the farside is alive with activity. On Nov.
26th, NASA's twin STEREO spacecraft and the Solar and
Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) observed eruptions from multiple
farside blast sites.

movies of these events and for more information about when the active
regions might turn to face Earth.
> RADAR MOON: Earlier this
week, the Moon passed through the beam of the US Air Force Space
Surveillance Radar in Texas. An electrical engineer in Georgia recorded
the echo and made a simple image of the Moon based on the
reflection. Sights and sounds of the "radar Moon" are featured on
today's edition of http://spaceweather.com.
