  Joseph Norman Lockyer Summary
Lockyer began his spectroscopic observation of sunspots in 1866, and discovered that solar prominences are clouds of gas resulting from upheavals in the outer layer of the sun.
Lockyer identified a yellow strip in the spectrum of the sun that conventional scientific opinion of the time held as a known element under extraordinary circumstances.
The Norman Lockyer Chair in Astrophysics at the University of Exeter is currently held by Professor Tim Naylor, who heads a star formation group there.

Lockyer was born in Rugby, the Midlands, and began as an amateur astronomer.
Although Lockyer had been the first to think of it, the same idea had occurred to French astronomer Pierre Janssen, then working in India, and they simultaneously notified the French Academy of Sciences of the same result.
Lockyer also developed the theory that Stonehenge is oriented towards the direction in which the Sun rises at the time of the summer solstice.
