Solar Images on the World Wide Web
Because observatories on the ground have to deal with clouds and other
kinds of weather, some observatories aren't able to make solar images
every day. Below is a list of other observatories on the WWW, with the
most recent solar images
available. If one
has images that are a few days old, then maybe another one has more
current images! You can also use this to see what the weather might be
like in different parts of the world.
