Eleven colorfully illustrated chapters give readers technical information on solar observation, from the structure of the Sun to professional solar astronomy. Readers learn how to observe the Sun safely and how to make a pinhole camera. Major solar space missions, a list of forthcoming solar eclipses and the effects of the Sun on Earth are also covered. Some of the information is too technical for a casual reader (e.g., information on Stoneyhurst disks and Zurich grids), but most will be appropriate for YAs.
