Our Srar

Our Star
Its image is mesmerizing - out of this world - through a solar telescope...
A star full of life, willing to talk to you, sometimes through its carefree fairies (prominences), dancing at the disk limbs or its black halos (sun spots) and serpentine figures (filaments), crawling on its surface making any observer gazing at them in awe...

A fascinating spectacle changing every day without repeating the magic of the previous day...
This is what makes it a unique, worth observing celestial object by amateur and professional astronomers alike....
