Captured by the Coronado Solar Max 60 Double Stacked Hydrogen Alpha Solar Telescope, (say that five times fast), at a clip of one frame per every sixty seconds passed, comes an incredible time-lapse look at this week’s annular solar eclipse – an occurrence that hasn’t taken place since 1994.
What makes this particular video so unique is the telescope’s ability to capture the Sun’s chromosphere in stark detail, capturing the plumes emitted from the second of the Sun’s three main layers, which is approximately 1,200 deep.
Since it has been a whole 18-years since the last eclipse of this kind, it’s amazing to think how far capturing technologies have come since then, allowing for incredible documentation of celestial occurrences shown below. Take a look:
