What is Sun Spotter for Mac

Sun Spotter is a simple tool for amateur astronomers and anyone interesting in the Sun. Sun Spotter displays the latest images of the Sun at the SOHO Web site. Images can be saved to the Desktop as required.

Sun Spotter is designed to be quicker and easier to use that visiting the SOHO page directly. Keyboard shortcuts make it easy to toggle between the views, and buttons take you to the relevant Web pages to find out more about what you're looking at. Additional links take you to supplementary SOHO pages including the SOHO Classroom.

Although it is not available on MacUpdate, another great Mac app for studying solar images -- including solar movies -- is JHelioviewer. The Macintosh version currently stands at 2.1.3 rev 421. It is a Java-based program, but runs great on my 27" iMac running the latest version of Snow Leopard. You can download this free app at: http://www.jhelioviewer.org/ The images and movies it creates are huge, and quite impressive.

It works well on Leopard. It does what it says it would do. Thanks I've been suffering through the loss of Solscape when I upgraded to Leopard. Sun Spotter doesn't do all that Solscape does, but that's OK. I like it.

Of course. And the application Read Me says as much! But if you're an amateur astronomer (like me) who likes to view the Sun through a telescope, being able to quickly toggle between different solar views via keyboard shortcuts is actually very useful.

Hmm.. instead of using an application I can just go to http://plop.nascom.nasa.gov/ and get the images in my browser.
