At the moment of “totality,” when the moon’s shadow totally obscures the sun, the sun’s outer atmosphere — the solar corona — becomes visible. NASA says this seldom-seen sight — visible for about two minutes at most — is coveted by experienced eclipse watchers and an awe-inspiring vision for first-time viewers.
Over at The Big Picture, The Boston Globe site, there are incredible images of Jupiter. I love this astronomy business.
