Aug. 21 Solar Eclipse, From Ground and Space

This composite image shows the Sun’s atmosphere, the corona (as seen by the SOHO satellite) and a ground-based image of the Aug. 21, 2017, solar eclipse at totality. During a total solar eclipse, ground-based telescopes can observe the lowest part of the solar corona in a way that can’t be done at any other time.
