Total solar eclipse, 1991 Featured November Print

Total solar eclipse, 1991

Multiple exposure of the total solar eclipse which occurred on July 11th 1991. The image shows the beginning of the eclipse (left), the totality (centre) and the end. For a few minutes during totality the Moon completely covers the Sun making the solar corona visible as a shining white halo around the solar disc. The solar corona is a region of low density and high temperature (about 1 million Kelvin) and represents the upper part of the solar atmosphere. It is usually undetectable due to the overwhelming brightness of the inner region of the solar atmosphere, the photosphere. The image was taken in California, United States

Milky Way Featured November Print

Milky Way

Milky Way. Mosaic of photographs of the Milky Way, the spiral galaxy in which our solar system lies. Our Sun is believed to be around two-thirds of the way out from the centre in a small spiral arm. Galactic Centre lies at the centre of the image in the constellation Sagittarius. This is where the bulge of stars in the Milky Way is at its greatest, tapering away on either side. The image runs around the whole of the sky, so our view away from Galactic Centre is seen both at far left and at far right. Interstellar dust obscures much of the Galaxy's central axis. The Milky Way is thought to be about 120, 000 light years across and to contain over 100 billion stars
