We receive excellent photographs from our readers every day. Take a look at EarthSky Community Photos for the latest ones, or submit your own! Take extra care with the sun, though, as looking directly at it (or through a camera lens) will damage your eyes, unless you’re using special equipment.
Bottom line: An interesting image of the sun, submitted by an EarthSky reader.
Theresa Wiegert is a Swedish-Canadian astronomer with a Ph.D. in astrophysics and a master's in physics. She has loved the sky and everything in it and beyond ever since she was four years old and asked her father about the very bright star she saw one early Christmas morning. Learning it wasn’t a star but the planet Venus, she started reading anything astronomy-related she could find. Eventually she ended up as a radio astronomer, researching gas in spiral galaxies. She loves science outreach and teaching, especially showing the night sky to groups of kids (and adults!).
