Sun-Earth Days Observing Certificate Challenge

Attention amateur astronomers! NASA's Sun-Earth Days program wants to feature your astronomy photographs and videos (up to 90 seconds each) of our active sun. Images will be featured on the Sun-Earth Days Solar Maximum Flickr page. And each week, a different image will be selected to highlight on the NASA Sun-Earth Days home page.

Once your image or video is uploaded with the proper supporting information, you will be able to download a certificate of appreciation from the NASA Sun-Earth Days team.

Participants are also invited to upload images of Sun-Earth Days Solar MAX events, celebrations, activities and star parties. These images often provide others with inspiration and new ideas! Make sure to include your name, club or organization's name and a description of the event.

Images and videos must be submitted online by March 22, 2013.
