Sun for all

Sun for all

The project Sun for all aims to promote science and astronomy among students.

The project rests on the asset of over 30000 Sun images (spectroheliograms) that are kept in the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Coimbra, as a result of a work of over 80 years of daily solar observations that started in 1926. The solar observations collection has an enormous scientific value. Thus, this project aims to make this collection available in a digital way via WWW to Portuguese and foreign students, as well as a set of activities that enables them to use these images, in order to introduce them to the scientific method, having the Sun and its atmosphere as the background.
