Description (Brief)
Solar power starts with the sun. This color lithograph is one of a set produced by Étienne L. Trouvelot (1827-1895) and published by Charles Scribner's Sons in 1881. “Solar Protuberances” is based on observations of the sun Trouvelot made on 5 May 1873. This particular lithograph was one of several used by traveling science lecturer Charles Came and later by his son-in-law Samuel Corby during public presentations given in the latter nineteenth century.
