The start of the Eclipse
A spectacular sight, in an amazing place..
A photo taken by Charlie and Ros, with whom we shared the eclipse experience.
This is an excellent image showing several prominences between 11 and 12 o’clock. The magnetic poles of the Sun are at 1 and 7 o’clock, and the corona is at its most extensive around the magnetic equator 4 and 10 o’clock.
This short exposure brings out the prominences whilst sacrificing the full extent of the Corona. An idea of the scale of this image can be given by realising that the small circular prominence at approximately 11 o’clock is over twice the size of the Earth!
