    Default An Introduction to Solar System Astronomy

    I have been working my way through this podcast and find it very good.

    An Introduction to Solar System Astronomy with Prof. Richard Pogge

    It can be found on I tunes (free) as well as the web page below which has supporting information and the audio.

    If you're particularly interested in the basics about solar phenomena, I recommend this series:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kZ6...qg2PDj&index=1

    I had never heard the fact that the sunspot minimum always corresponds to a polar maximum and vice versa. The series builds up nicely to this point (explaining sunspots, the solar "heartbeat" and the business of maximums and minimums).

    This series also explains the Grand Maximum and the Grand Minimum quite well.

    I recommend it be taken with a grain of salt. There is some silly anthropomorphizing. There is also a lot of language that seems attempt seduction in the direction of "climate change is caused by sunspots or CMEs". I suspect that the motives of the author are to set up essentially political propaganda that is anti science.

    This is the same Ben Davidson who, with no background in science, is advocating the pseudoscientific Electric Universe cult.
