Getting a little closer to figuring out how to shoot the sun, in preparation for the solar eclipse. You can start to make out some features in the sun today, even though there are no sunspots. You can also faintly make out some of the chromosphere on the very edge.

Absolutely breathtaking! Will you photograph the eclipse next month?
Thank you. That is the plan provided we get clear skies.
Looking forward to seeing your pics of the eclipse… solar dreaming. I’ll be in Australia watching vicariously from half a world away.
Thanks Margaret! This might very well be the most photographed astronomical event in world history. It will be fun to see the images that people make from across the United States in the days after the eclipse.
