The goal of these workshops was to analyse sun spots and the proturbulences (big arcs and loops of burning material rising surface of Sun and falling on them again. They usually appear near the sun splashes and are related to the magnetic field of the Sun) The observations were conducted using a Sun filter in the BAADER foil form and an optical telescope in the Newton system. A special interest was given to the Observations made by the sun telescope CORONADO equipped with an Ha filter were the most popular among all participants.
