The Wider Image: Kodaikanal's sungazers
In the early morning darkness, Devendran P. walks up a hill to a solar observatory in India's southern hill town of Kodaikanal, trudging the same path his father and grandfather walked in a century-old family tradition of studying the sun. Once inside, he pulls a rope to open shutters in the dome and positions a six-inch telescope used since 1899 to photograph the sun and preserve a daily record of its activity. "The sun, like stars, has a lifetime of 10 billion years," Devendran told Reuters during a recent visit to the observatory in India's southern state of Tamil Nadu. "If you want to know about any small changes, you need to have a large amount of data." The observatory run by the Indian Institute of Astrophysics has a key role in providing a continuous stream of data on the sun and its influence on Earth and surrounding space, said R. Ramesh, a professor at the institute.ÊREUTERS/Danish Siddiqui SEARCH "SUN GAZING" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

The 'Milky Way' is seen in the night sky around telescopes and camps of people over rocks in the White Desert north of the Farafra Oasis southwest of Cairo May 16, 2015. The White Desert, about 500 km southwest of the Egyptian capital Cairo, features limestone and chalk forms strangely shaped by the wind and sand, a terrain that gains in intensity when illuminated by the moon. Slightly to the north lies the Black Desert, given its name by the volcanic rock dolerite, similar to basalt. Four-by-four and trekking trips for tourists include Bedouin music around campfires and nights slept under a breathtaking array of stars. Picture taken May 16, 2015. REUTERS/Amr Abdallah Dalsh

A contrail is seen of the central coast off Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, after a Orbital Pegasus rocket was launched, June 27, 2013. A small NASA telescope was launched into orbit on Thursday on a mission to determine how the sun heats its atmosphere to millions of degrees, sending off rivers of particles that define the boundaries of the solar system. The telescope was launched aboard an Orbital Sciences Corp Pegasus rocket at 10:27 p.m. EDT Thursday (0227 GMT Friday). Pegasus is an air-launched system that is carried aloft by a modified L-1011 aircraft that took off from Vandenberg AFB about 57 minutes before launch. The rocket was released from beneath the belly of the plane at an altitude of about 39,000 feet (11,900 meters) before it ignited to carry the telescope into orbit.

David Hughes shows on a screen an image of Galaxy M82 in Sierra Negra Volcano
David Hughes, director of the world's largest millimeter telescope, shows on a screen an image of Galaxy M82 taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, during an interview with Reuters television in the Sierra Negra Volcano June 21, 2011. The superimposed spectrum shows molecular gas detected by the Large Millimeter Telescope between 2 and 4 millimeters. The emission lines of different molecular species are identified with their chemical symbol in yellow. Amongst others, different isotopes of carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen cyanide (HCN) and methylacetylene (CH3C2H) and various hydrocarbons have been detected. The telescope, which sits on an altitude of 4,600 m (15,000 ft.), is the result of a bi-national project between Mexico and the U.S., according to its website. The first observations were made at 3 mm on June 1, 2011, according to Instituto Nacional de Astrofisica, Optica y Electronica (INAOE). REUTERS/Henry Romero (MEXICO - Tags: SCI TECH)
