From this evening until July 1, at 23 Princes St, projections will be shown live from a Dunedin Astronomical Society solar telescope set up on Otago House, and once the sun sets, another set up in Dresden, Germany, will take over.
That telescope was sourced through contacts of the astronomical society. Ms Lane said if it was cloudy, she would project images from Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which is in orbit around the earth.
The project came from a comment by a friend that "all energy comes from the sun".
