"Coronal Mischief" by Andrew McCarthy
printed on C-Type Matt
Framed options now available
Our sun, as captured on August 9th, 2022, with a twist.
Ordinarily, the solar corona (the faint, outermost layer of the solar atmosphere) is invisible from Earth, with one exception. During a total solar eclipse, the sun's Corona is briefly visible, and capturing a photo of it becomes simple. For this photo, I used my photo of the 2017 eclipse layered into this image to show you how the sun's atmospheric layers appear relative to each other. The corona has "spikes" which roughly correspond to chromosphere activity, which are the prominences you see on the edge of the solar limb.
The sizes indicated is the "leaf" size, the unframed print will also include a small white border for handling and framing, and the framed print will be slightly larger due to the thickness of the frame.
