Corona composite -- This image was created by combining 10 frames taken on negative film. While it does not represent the actual view of the eclipse, it enhances the visibility of the coronal streamers. An additional 2-second exposure is superimposed to show the darkened moon illuminated by earthshine. Click on the image to see the eclipse without the moon, which is how the eclipse appeared visually.
