Solar Eclipse 2010 (part 2)

Mary and Les Anderson


At the top is a blow up of a picture from just before second contact (start of totality) that shows a clear prominence near the bottom. In the next image is a blow up from just after third contact (end of totality) that shows a lot of the coronasphere, the thin red layer of the sun that is only seen during an eclipse. Below that are three pictures that closely approximate what the eye sees during a total eclipse: the first diamond ring (note rainbow effect on the left), the corona during totality, and the last diamond ring. All of these pictures are by Les Anderson. At the bottom is a wide angle view of the eclipse and the eclipse watchers onboard the Aranui 3. This photo is by Mary Anderson.
