Corona Solar Telescope

Some astronomy teachers tell their kids not to look into sun. Not me! Using the Personal Solar Telescopes you can look directly at the sun and see sun spots and prominences. This has been a really cool part of my astronomy class over the years and will continue to be this year as well. Go solar activity!

Isn't there also some website Travis has mentioned that will report whether there are sunspots to be seen on the date you are looking?
Perhaps its the NASA site listed below:
