  1. Sun is always amazing. While under normal conditions you cannot see prominences except if you use a dedicated H-alpha solar telescope, you can see them during total solar eclipse. Next one over USA will be in 2017 if I remember well. But this year (2012) you can see an annular solar eclipse over west USA – which is in itself quite amazing, or go to Australia in november for a totality. And you can join us at http://eclipses.eu
