Solar eclipse - one of the most beautiful phenomenon that we can observe on the sky. Especially total eclipses are really spectacular.
But this time in Poland we had only shallow partial eclipse when Moon only partially obscured Sun. This phenomenon looks very interesting in h-alpha band when you can observe also interesting structures in solar chromosphere – spicules, active regions, prominences and filaments. On this photo dark shadow of Moon outside visible solar disc was added artificially to show how meeting of this two celestial bodies looked like.
Artist: Łukasz Sujka. For over 10 years associated with amateur astronomy and photography of the night sky. He enjoys exploring still undiscovered areas of astrophotography and still looking for new challenges such as the photography of Venus sulfuric clouds, the Moon's mineral colors, colliding galaxies, Albert Einstein’s gravitational lensing and others. However, his greatest passion is the large-scale photography of the Solar System objects - planets, the Moon and our closest star - Sun (using a dedicated solar telescope). Łukasz is a laureate of many prestigious awards - including win in the category of "Planets, comets and asteroids" in the largest astrophotography competition in the world - "Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2020" and second place in the international competition Astrocamera 2020. His works are also regularly recognized as Image of the Day on Astrobin portal.
