Sun-Earth Day

Sun-Earth Day is comprised of a series of programs and events that occur throughout the year culminating with a celebration on or near the Spring Equinox. Each year it wraps a fresh new thematic approach around Sun-Earth science while highlighting Sun-Earth Connection scientists, their missions and research.

This year's theme, "Shadows of the Sun," explores the nature of eclipses and transits throughout our solar system. Visit the site to learn about event locations, upcoming podcasts, multimedia, and more!
