Le Soleil

(luh soh-LAY = the sun)
Le soleil means the sun. As I write here in Canada, the days are getting longer as we move through the winter and anticipate the arrival of spring. The English word solar means “having to do with the sun,” as in “solar system” (our sun and its satellites), “solar energy” (energy from the sun) and “solarium” (a place to enjoy the sun). Soleil and solar are descended from the Latin word for sun: sol.

To visit the site (with English links) of a French observatory where the sun is studied, visit: L’Observatoire de Paris

This Paris Observatory Solar Archive Site contains up-to-date photographs of the sun’s activity.
