Ozone does not create nitric acid. Nitrogen plays a very big part in the formation of ozone, and if water vapor gets stuck in the middle of ozone formation, various NOx compounds are formed.

Corona discharge makes more of *everything* than most UV systems, because the energies are much higher. If there is water vapor present NOx is made, regardless of method.

The issue for "spa" systems is no one dries the air fed to the ozone system, and the clearances in a UV system are huge. So the nitric acid gets fed straight to the spa water, whereas in the corona discharge system it stays and gunks up the small gaps involved.

Not necessarily. It could, but as humans cannot perceive these colors, and white is based off of our perception of a color containing red, blue, and green, ultraviolet and infrared are not necessary to create "white".

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking but the sun is visible everyday! Just look up. During a Total Solar eclipse however the outer atmosphere of the sun known as the corona is visible. This is the only time that it can been seen (with the naked eye) from earth.
