I travelled to the US to see last week’s total eclipse from just north of Madras, Oregon. From our position, we had 1m 30s of totality – nowhere near enough! below is a sequence of frames taken during the eclipse. What I did find interesting – although they don’t show up on the overexposed totality images – was that some solar prominences were clearly visible through the camera viewfinder. The totality images do however show the extent of the solar corona, and the presence of a number of sunspots helps to make the iamges from the partial phase more interesting.
