<<ESA’s space weather microsatellite Proba-2 observed the solar eclipse on the evening of May 20, 2012. It passed through the Moon’s shadow a total of four times, imaging a sequence of partial solar eclipses in the process. The first contact was made on Sunday May 20 at 21:09 GMT. The last contact finished at 03:04 GMT.>>

Amazing Eclipse Timelapse Shows the Sun’s Chromosphere
Universe Today | Nancy Atkinson | 2012 May 21
An amazing timelapse video by Cory Poole was made from 700 photographs taken with a Coronado Solar Max 60 Double Stack telescope. Usually, the chromosphere can’t usually be seen due to the overwhelming brightness of the photosphere, and to see it requires special equipment. Thankfully, Poole has it: “The Telescope has a very narrow bandpass allowing you to see the chromosphere and not the much brighter photosphere below it,” Poole wrote on YouTube. Additionally, the special hydrogen alpha filter Poole used “only allows light that is created when hydrogen atoms go from the 2nd excited state to the 1st excited state.”

The chromosphere is the red circle around the outside of the Sun; its red coloring is caused by the abundance of hydrogen. Watch how the chromosphere appears along the outline of the Moon, too!

The Marine Layer of clouds here made for an apocalyptic looking scene, an unexpected surprise since usually you might not want clouds when photographing an eclipse :)

Here are all the cool things people built to watch the eclipse. From giant pinhole cameras to brainiac alien masks. Some cool eclipse pics too. Taken at Whiskey Town Lake National Recreation Area in California.

Annular Eclipse Composite

Image
Annular Eclipse Composite by Radical Retinoscopy, on Flickr

Thirty Two images of the May 20, 2012 annular eclipse were combined to make this composite image. The images were taken using various exposure settings to best capture the solar disc. A Canon t2i and Sigma 70-300 mm telephoto lens at 300 mm was used. A Baader solar filter was applied over the telephoto lens to permit safe photography of the sun. The images were taken in my back yard in Phoenix, Arizona. Phoenix was located approximately a hundred miles south of the zone of complete annularity that was visible at the Grand Canyon and other regions of northern Arizona. Trees can be seen obscuring the solar disc in the later images taken near sunset. At my location, the sun set while still being partially eclipsed.

During the annular eclipse there was a group of astronomers and park rangers at Glen Canyon showing visitors the eclipse.

I was lucky enough to capture their activity with the sun itself as the backdrop!
