Paper Abstract

Mt. Wumingshan (Mt. WMS) is an outstanding astronomical site recently discovered by Yunnan observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences during the survey of potential sites for China's next-generation ground-based large-aperture Solar telescopes. Currently, two temporary observation platforms have been built in Mt. WMS. Moreover, the continuous observations have also been conducted with the accumulation of numerous data. This paper describes the overview of the site, the observation platform and the monitor instrument. Besides,the preliminary statistical results are presented.
