Daytime Astronomy

Perhaps the very term, “daytime astronomy,” sounds like a contradiction. However, it relates mostly to observing the Sun, our nearest star. While the solar system's mighty benefactor remains the most important object of study for daytime activities, believe it or not there are some other things you can do during the day as well. In some ways unconventional, they are, nevertheless, more than merely trivial pursuits and thus may deserve a little of your attention, too.
