This virtual tour of the Sun, from Michiel Berger at the University of Amsterdam's Astronomical Institute, shows spectacular images and animations of solar flares, sun spots, magnetic fields, and solar eclipses. The site explains much about the science of the sun and the influence it has on the solar system. This resource is referenced in the ARTSEDGE lesson titled "The Sun and Moon in Space and Art."
