What better way to enjoy a solar eclipse than with a white light solar telescope! These telescopes allow you to safely view the Sun by blocking over 99.99% of the Sun’s harmful rays yet allowing the full wavelength spectrum to shine through. This means you will see the Sun’s photosphere. The photosphere is often considered the easiest layer of the Sun to see because it generates the most amount of light. At this layer, you will be able to see sunspots, solar flares, and even granulation, the texture of the Sun’s surface.
Most white light solar telescopes depict the Sun in a white color, although some show the yellow-orange sun we typically familiar with. These telescopes are an affordable option for anyone interested in observing the Sun.
