www.eyesonthesky.com With shorter nights and longer days, what better time to see the closest star to Earth than during summer!? Visual solar filters are not very expensive, and because there is plenty of light (with a filter!), telescopes as small 50mm or 60mm are just fine for solar observing. Find out what to see (and what you can see on the Sun this week!) and look for whenever you do solar observing, and also learn about specialized filters for viewing solar flares and prominences. See what's up in the sky every week with "Eyes on the Sky" videos, astronomy made easy.
