700-Photo Timelapse of The Annular Solar Eclipse (Video)
May 22, 2012 13:52
Yesterday was the annular solar eclipse. Not many people I know actually saw it, but if you didn't and are like the rest of us then you can watch it online, where your eyes would be much safer from the sun's dangerous rays.
Thanks to photographers like Cory Poole who did a fine job capturing the "Ring of Fire." Poole's timelapse of the entire eclipse might just be one of the best out there.
In Poole's own words:
700 pictures through a Coronado Solar Max 60 Double Stack telescope were used to make this video. The Telescope has a very narrow bandpass allowing you to see the chromosphere and not the much brighter photosphere below it.
The solar eclipse was part of the Saros 128, a series of eclipses that happens once every 18 years. The next Saros 128 annular solar eclipse won't be seen until June 1, 2030.
