Our home star - our sun

Here you will find the pictures of the current month

last update 21.09.2022

Our Sun, together with its planets and our Earth, is one of about 300 billion! suns in our home galaxy. It sends us light and heat rays and makes life here on Earth possible in the first place.

The energy of the sun is formed deep in the core, where hydrogen is transformed into helium. This produces visible light and heat radiation.

The Lenzen Observatory has a system with which a certain wavelength of sunlight becomes visible.

This creates an artificial solar eclipse (Daystar Quark Prominence and special energy protection filter), which then makes prominences and other interesting details on the surface of the sun visible. The exposure times are about 20 milliseconds for the prominences and about 2 milliseconds for the sunspots. Approximately 100 individual images are created automatically, which are then sorted according to quality. The best images are added up and finalised.
