Abstract : Much of our observational effort over the three year period of this grant has focused on collecting, reducing and interpreting our observational data taken at Sacramento Peak Observatory in New Mexico. From this effort and our theoretical work, we have demonstrated that there are two co-existing five minute period period phenomena on the Sun's surface. The first is the well-known oscillations we study to determine internal properties of the Sun. Best known among these properties is the Sun's internal rotation rate. The second one is the residual of the excitation acoustic events. The acoustic events are the smoke from the fire exciting the solar oscillations.
