Dark Sun over Ternate : A dark Sun hangs in the clearing sky…

Dark Sun over Ternate : A dark Sun hangs in the clearing sky over a volcanic planet in this morning sea and skycape. It was taken during this weeks total solar eclipse, a dramatic snapshot from along the narrow path of totality in the dark shadow of a New Moon. Earths Indonesian isle of Ternate, North Maluku lies in the foreground. The sky is still bright near the eastern horizon though, beyond the regions flattened volcanic peaks and outside the Moons umbral shadow. In fact, near the equator the dark lunar umbra is rushing eastward across Earths surface at about 1,700 kilometers per hour. Shining through the thin clouds, around the Suns silhouette is the alluring glow of the solar corona, only easily seen during totality. An inspiring sight for eclipse watchers, this solar corona is the tenuous, hot outer atmosphere of the Sun. via NASA
