Great ball of fire

Artist Trudy Lane stands in front of a projection of the sun at her Urban Dream Brokerage event yesterday.

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".
