Corona as Observed by Liais, 1857

from 35.00

'A total eclipse of the sun is unquestionably one of the most impressive of all natural phenomena, and the corona, or aureole of light, which then surrounds the sun, is its most impressive feature. On such an occasion, if the sky is clear, the moon appears of almost inky darkness, with just sufficient illumination at the edge of the disk to bring out its rotundity in a striking manner... From behind it, stream out on all sides radiant filaments, beams, and sheets of pearly light, which reach to a distance sometimes of several degrees from the solar surface, forming an irregular stellate halo, with the black globe of the moon is its apparent centre.'
