See the Sun live!

Heard about this app on NPR's Science Friday. So cool that you can use the app to see live images of the Sun! Once the rain stops, I'm going to do some of these activities with my niece and nephew.

Great App

Love this App! It is fun to look at the many images of the sun using different wave lengths.
