See some incredible images of the Sun on the website by Stephen A. Ames Jr from Hogdenville, USA.

 

He believes that he maintains the most comprehensive daily record of solar activity out there with over 2000 solar images currently and growing everyday. There is at least one image or sketch for every day.

 

Maybe your site is better, if so please let the Sun|trek team know!
