Clearest images of Corona ever taken during solar eclipse

March 11, 2010 Gaurav Sood Science

Here are few spectacular images of the corona, the outer magnetic field of sun, which is in the form of a shell of super-hot gas. It is hard to imagine a temperature of around 2,000,000c in general and much harder to see it due to unbearable brightness. But, the eclipse hunter Miloslav Druckmuller provided these stunning images which he took on the Marshall Islands in July 2009.

The image is a montage and is a combination of 38 images taken at the spot with exposure time between 1/125 seconds and 8 seconds. I am sure that these images will mesmerize you for a while.
