Corona During Totality
400mm lens was used
Fully Formed Diamond Ring
Three Large Prominences
Notice how the corona field lines loop around the prominence.
This bright picture of the corona was taken midway through the eclipse.
This fast exposure captured the prominences lifting off of the surface.
The moon is swallowing up the sunspots.
Diamond Ring Begins
The diamond ring is just beginning to form.
With this short exposure the prominences dominate the corona.
Loops Within Loops
The loops of the prominences are buried within the loops within the corona. A little less contrast than the other similar photo.
Here this diamond ring close up is shown with the full corona with a full array of lens artifacts.
Big Spots Little Spots
The inset magnified shows the details of the sunspots swimming the sea of super granules.
Now You See It
The most prominent of the sunspots is disappearing behind the moon.
The last of the sunspots left in the crescent of the sun.
