Solar Physics a journal for solar and solar-stellar research and the study of solar terrestrial physics. It was founded in 1967 by solar physicist Cornelis de Jager and publisher D. Reidel. The journal treats all aspects of solar physics, ranging from the internal structure of the Sun and its evolution, to outer corona and solar wind in interplanetary space. The journal is published monthly by Springer and is printed in the Netherlands. Twice a year double issues are printed. The current editors are Lidia van Driel-Gesztelyi, John Leibacher, and Takashi Sakurai. Like most research journals in the astronomy field, Solar Physics is also available online. Solar Physics has an impact factor of 2.774 (2008).

A solar flare recorded from Spain in 1886

Satellites have detected powerful solar flares in the last two months, but this phenomenon has been recorded for over a century. On 10 September 1886, at the age of just 17, a young amateur astronomer from Madrid, using a ...

Nanodust particles in the interplanetary medium

Dust particles smaller than about a wavelength of light are abundant in our solar system, created by collisions between asteroids and from the evaporation of comets. As they scatter sunlight, these particles produce the zodiacal ...

Sun's activity in 18th century was similar to that now

Counting sunspots over time helps in knowing the activity of our star but the two indices used by scientists disagree on dates prior to 1885. Now an international team of researchers has tried to standardise the historical ...

Tiny dust particles in the solar system

( —In our solar system, dust particles are abundant, created by asteroid collisions and by the evaporation of comets. These particles are the source of the zodiacal light, a diffuse glow in the night sky that extends ...

Solar tsunami used to measure Sun's magnetic field

( —A solar tsunami observed by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the Japanese Hinode spacecraft has been used to provide the first accurate estimates of the Sun's magnetic field.

Loopholes discovered in Sun's magnetic belt

(—The mystery surrounding how an electrically charged solar wind can be unleashed from around the Sun's equator – an area where strong magnetic fields should strap it to the surface – has been solved by an ...
