Welcome to the ASSA Solar Section
The Sun, our closest star, is a dynamic variable. The 11-year solar cycle reveals ever-changing activities e.g. sunspots, prominences, filaments, and flares. These activities can be observed with relatively small telescopes equipped with special filters.
The ASSA Solar Section is looking for enthusiastic astronomers who want to participate in solar observation. Member’s observations of sunspot counts, solar images, etc., will be published in our solar bulletin, which is shared internationally.
Find out all you need to know about observing the Sun safely.
Contact the Director to join our Whatsapp group for timeous updates, Q&A, shared experiences, and meaningful discussion.
