Solar astronomy is the scientific study of the celestial star we refer to as the sun. The sun is responsible for Earth’s climate, weather, and sea surface changes.

With special filtered telescopes you can observe the sun safely without hurting your eyes. There's more to the sun than just a yellow ball. See for yourself what the sun's surface and atmosphere look like—93 million miles away.
