Submission + - Scientists want you to spot and track solar storms (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: It's not everyday you can get deeply involved in a space program by sitting at your computer.

The project, known as Solar Stormwatch uses real data from NASA's STEREO (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory) satellites, which are currently in orbit around the Sun and provide researchers with constant details about activities on the Sun's surface.
