This is an activity about using what you can see to identify what you cannot see. Learners will examine images of the Sun taken over one complete solar rotation and look for data features that appear on the farside of the Sun which persist at the same location as the Sun rotates to bring that part to the side facing Earth. This activity requires access to the internet to obtain images from the Stanford University solar magnetic map archive from 1996 to 2011. This is Activity 6 of the Space Weather Forecast curriculum.
