Panorama astral photography image of 2017 solar eclipse. This composite photo shows the sequence of events leading to the diamond ring effect before and after totality.
During totality, the sun’s corona is a plasma field that extends for millions of kilometers into space creating an aura-like cloud. This historic event is actually a regular occurrence. Every 1.5 years or so, on some part of the Earth a total solar eclipse occurs. Normally these events occur over water, challenging the most avid of skywatchers and astral photographers. While others occur in remote regions.
The 2017 solar eclipse made history as the path of totality was over North America. The 2024 solar eclipse will also pass over the North American continent and is set to be another global phenomenon for amazing astrophotography.
