1   Link   SDO
Solar Dynamic Observatory - this is a stunning mission that became operational in March 2010
2   Link   SOHO
This is the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory SOHO website this science mission has been delivering superb space based data since 1995.
3   Link   STEREO
STEREO (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory) is the third mission in NASA's Solar Terrestrial Probes program (STP). The mission, launched in October 2006, has provided a unique and revolutionary view of the Sun-Earth System.
4   Link   Swedish Solar Telescope
This is the 1m Swedish Solar Telescope (SST) on the island of La Palma, Spain, had first light with a stopped down 60 cm aperture on March 2, 2002. On May 21, the telescope was opened to full aperture and the adaptive optics system was switched on for the first time.
5   Link   Big Bear Solar Observatory
The Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO) is an astronomical telescopic observatory with main interests in studying the physics of the Sun. The instruments and telescopes of the observatory are designed and employed specifically for studying the activities and phenomena of our solar system's star. The observatory is also participating in an experiment in helioseismology with the use of a GONG telescope from the Global Oscillation Network Group. The BBSO has been operated by the New Jersey Institute of Technology since 1997.
6   Link   Global Oscillations Network Group
The Global Oscillation Network Group (GONG) is a community-based program to conduct a detailed study of solar internal structure and dynamics using helioseismology. In order to exploit this new technique, GONG has developed a six-station network of extremely sensitive, and stable velocity imagers located around the Earth to obtain nearly continuous observations of the Sun's "five-minute" oscillations, or pulsations
7   Link   Solar Influence Data Centre
The Solar Influences Data Analysis Center (SIDC), which is the solar physics research department of the Royal Observatory of Belgium. The SIDC includes the World Data Center for the sunspot index and the ISES Regional Warning Center Brussels for space weather forecasting.
8   Link   Large Solar Optical Telescopes
Here is a comprehensive list of large optical solar telescopes with links to their respective sites.
9   Link   NOAA/NWS Space Weather Prediction
Excellent service to check on space weather prediction and the magnitude of solar flares
10   Link   Dutch Open Telescope
The Dutch Open Telescope on La Palma is an innovative solar telescope for high-resolution imaging of the Sun.
11   Link   Progress on the new 1.6m solar telescope at Big Bear Observatory
Here is a paper showing the progress on the new 1.6m solar telescope at Big Bear Observatory
12   Link   Solar Space Observatories
Here are the Solar Space Observatories.
13   Link   List of large Solar Telescopes
Here is a list of the large Solar Telescopes since 1900
14   Link   Stanford Solar Centre
Here is an excellent website about the Sun
15   Link   Udaipur Solar Observatory
This is the excellent website of India's Solar Observatory.
16   Link   Mauna Loa Solar Observatory
Here is the excellent website of the Solar Observatory on the Island of Mauna Loa Hawaii
17   Link   IRIS
Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph. Understanding the interface between the photosphere and corona remains a fundamental challenge in solar and heliospheric science. The Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) mission opens a window of discovery into this crucial region by tracing the flow of energy and plasma through the chromosphere and transition region into the corona using spectrometry and imaging.
