Yesterday, I was checking out the Night Sky Network (live telescopic broadcasts via the internet) late in the afternoon and one observer was broadcasting superb images of the Sun from AZ. I ended up watching a large prominence that grew, then arched over back to the Sun in real time. Other prominences were looked at by the observer as well as some views of the Sun's photosphere with sunspots.
Though this site is for night observing, checking it during anytime might bring up a solar observer like I did.

Hi Guys

Here is my contribution.

These are dynamic documents but here are over 135 books and substantive texts on the sun and solar astronomy starting from 1610 to the present, this is a very useful historical record of the progression and the techniques used for solar astronomy

Over 135 books and substantive papers/historical records on Solar astronomy

Here I have trawled the net to find over 115 substantive videos and TV programs about the Sun, solar activity and solar science

TV programs and substantive videos about the Sun/Solar Astronomy

These two archives are presented in chronological order and I hope you enjoy these and find them useful?

Regards

Andy Devey

Most of the pictures were taken with Solarscope SF50 for H-Alpha, Lunt CAK and a Thousand Oaks whitelight filter on a C8.

Recently I have acquired a used SF100 DS and so look out for its images
