Sun Astronomy

In recent days, DeKorte's Center for Environmental and Scientific Education has been providing young students with unusual looks at the Sun as part of the Meadowlands Environment Center's Solar Energy program.

Above, a class from Elizabeth is getting a peek at sunspots (below) through a Coronado SolarMax 90 telescope with a hydrogen-alpha filter. (That's why the Sun appears to be red in the photo, taken by the MEC's John Rusher. Thanks, John).
