Total solar eclipse Brad Templeton Image taken: Jul. 11, 2010 Location: Hao, French Polynesia Details: Flew to Hao, French Polynesia but most of eclipse was obscured by cloud. Did get a few good shots during a short break. Corona was much bigger than in 2009, and there were more prominences. More photos and panoramics to come. ©2013, SpaceWeather.com -- This site is penned daily by Dr. Tony Phillips.
