To Earth and its inhabitants, our Sun is the key that sustains life. To our solar system, the Sun is the key to its creation. Exploring our parent star opens an opportunity for us to witness phenomenal events, all associated with the production and transportation of energy. With minimal equipment, not only can we observe these fascinating events, we can record them, follow trends, and capture them through sketching! And if that is not incentive enough, we enjoy the warmth of daylight while doing it.
