Solar Eclipse August 21st 2017 As seen from Idaho

See Explanation. Clicking on the picture will download the highest resolution  version available. The Crown of the Sun Image Credit Copyright Derek Demeter  Emil Buehler Planetarium Explanation During a total solar eclipse, the Sun s  extensive outer atmosphere, or corona, is an inspirational sight. Streamers and  shimmering features visible to the eye span a brightness range of over 10,000  to 1, making them notoriously difficult to capture in a single photograph. But  this composite of telescopic images covers a wide range of exposure times to  reveal the crown of the Sun in all its glory. The aligned and stacked digital  frames were taken in clear skies above Stanley, Idaho in the Sawtooth Mountains  during the Sun s total eclipse on August 21. A pinkish solar prominence extends  just beyond the right edge of the solar disk. Even small details on the dark  night side of the New Moon can be made out, illuminated by sunlight reflected  from a Full Earth.

Explanation: During a total solar eclipse, the Sun's extensive outer atmosphere, or corona, is an inspirational sight. Streamers and shimmering features visible to the eye span a brightness range of over 10,000 to 1, making them notoriously difficult to capture in a single photograph. But this composite of telescopic images covers a wide range of exposure times to reveal the crown of the Sun in all its glory. The aligned and stacked digital frames were taken in clear skies above Stanley, Idaho in the Sawtooth Mountains during the Sun's total eclipse on August 21. A pinkish solar prominence extends just beyond the right edge of the solar disk. Even small details on the dark night side of the New Moon can be made out, illuminated by sunlight reflected from a Full Earth.

Thank you to all the families who watched our Lab animals over the Summer break! If you would like to take an animal home to feed and love over one of the school breaks, please send a note in to Mrs. Malloy in the science lab (include your child's name, grade, teacher and a parent contact name and number. This is a great way to see how your son/daughter cares for an animal before you invest in your own!
