Solar Eclipse Solar Eclipse – On the Limb

On the Limb

Here’s a black-and-white presentation of the total solar eclipse from 8-21-17. I made the recording near Mackay, Idaho. The capture depicts solar prominences emanating from the limb of the sun and extending into the star’s corona. On 4-8-24 another ‘apparent’ complete ‘covering’ of Old Sol will take place and might be viewed [depending on the weather] from specific earthbound locations in the Continental U.S.[Mexico and Canada, too]. Check out NASA’s website for the Great North American Eclipse and its path of totality. BE SURE to take proper SAFETY PRECAUTIONS if viewing/photographing.
