Every chance we get, we’re looking at the sun ahead of the US eclipse on Aug. 21. Here’s a little info about the sun itself: it rotates as a gas, not a solid.
We thought we saw sunspots yesterday, so we pointed a slightly more powerful telescope at the sun this morning. Yep. Sunspots.
The total solar eclipse is 15 days away and our telescopes are already tuning in the sun and moon. Take a close look.
