Siberian Totality

By: Tunc Tezel


Region: Asia

Site: Novosibirsk - Russia

Date: 2008 August 1

Phases of the total solar eclipse of 2008 August 1 are captured in this multi exposure digital image above the Ob Sea, a large lake near Novosibirsk in Russia-Siberia. The eclipse was visible over a thin swath of Earth extending from northern Canada to Siberia, Mongolia and China. At total solar eclipses although the brightest parts of the Sun are covered, the normally invisible corona of hot gas surrounding the Sun became prominent. Tunc Tezel.
