The sun is waking up, and the world’s largest solar telescope is watching

With the world’s largest solar telescope now conducting formal observations, scientists are eager to watch the sun’s increasing activity and better understand the threats of space weather.

The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST), located in Hawaii, began science observations earlier this year, joining a host of other sun watchers, most notably NASA’s Parker Solar Probe and the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Solar Orbiter. It’s perfect timing on two fronts: the sun’s activity is ramping up, and skywatchers will enjoy solar eclipses in both 2023 and 2024.
