During the total eclipse of the sun on August 21, 2017, solar prominences were visible on the limb of the sun. A solar prominence occurs only in regions of horizontal magnetic fields, and consists of sheets of luminous gas emanating from the sun's surface.
This photograph was taken using a Canon EOS Digital Rebel camera and a 300mm telephoto lens. The total eclipse was observed from Madras, Oregon.
