Seeing Solar Storms in STEREO-I

In this geometric calculations of solar storms worksheet, students use a diagram indicating the location of 2 STEREO satellites, the earth and the sun to calculate the distance between a Coronal Mass Ejection and the Earth. They use scaled construction or geometric calculations to solve for their answers. They also determine how long it takes for the Coronal Mass Ejection to reach the sun.
