Thank you.

I wish there was a way to just say that but there is a controlling need to fill in the rest of the dialogue to satisfy the system.

Me neither, it kind of caught me off guard the first time I saw it.

I did a quick google search and I came up with this:

apod.nasa.gov...

If it's real, then this has happened before.

Beautiful stuff.




Keep in mind that is a composite image made of 31 other images...


not a snapshot.

Absolutely Amazing

I had a solar eclipse tattooed on my chest in march 08, obviously no where near as capturing. My son was then born on the day of this eclipse.

So for this image we thank you

That's strange. Does it have anything to do with the angle or perhaps the technology that was used to take the photos?

Is it normal for the corona to look so different? I'm aware that this photo is from 2001 and that the other is from 2009.


I'm guessing it has to do with the camera used.
It mentioned in the blurb that the Canon EOS 5D was used.
That baby is one bad mother trucker. Drop a nice lens on that thing and you can shoot full HD video, from a digital camera!

Not to mention that it is a composite of 31 different shots, not just 1 picture.




The full-frame, 21-megapixel DSLR is the first to shoot full HD video, and with Digic 4, Canon is promising low-light performance on par with that of Nikon's D3 and D700 thanks to improved light gathering and noise reduction, with ISO range 100-6400, extendable up to 12,800 and 25,600.


Canon EOS 5D

The reason it looks so different from eclipse photos we are used to seeing is because of the technique used.

They take many photographs at different exposures in order to capture both the dark and light areas in detail then use software to combine them into one.

Look up HDR photography. If done right it can produce some stunning photos.


I didn't realise there was a name for the process, thanks for the heads up, have Googled and found some stunning images.

I thought the same thing, then realized we do.

Metaphysics opened my eyes to the true awesomeness we are so fortunate to be a part of. Once that door opens, you're sunk - can't go back to normal reality.
