This educational app about our Sun has three pieces:

· Filters: explore the Sun in different wavelengths. This includes a challenge mode where you’re asked to find various features on the Sun (sunspots, active regions, magnetic field structures, etc.)

· Eclipse: make your own eclipse by dragging the moon in front of the Sun, and discover eclipse features like the “diamond ring” and the Sun’s corona. This also has a challenge mode where you’re asked to not only find various features, but identify the point in an eclipse when they appear.

· Today’s Sun: interactively explore and compare real time images from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory in several different wavelengths.
