This photograph was taken during the total eclipse of the Sun on August 21, 2017. A total eclipse is a much more spectacular experience than an annular eclipse or a partial eclipse. I also have a number of photographs of the partial phases of this eclipse.
This photograph was taken from Madras, Oregon, with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel camera using a 300mm telephoto lens. Compare the solar corona during this eclipse to the total eclipse on February 26, 1998.
