Sun-Earth Day Presents: Eclipse, In a Different Light


Eclipse Drawing
Eclipse drawing from ‘The Circle of the Sciences’, by James Wylde, (London Printing, London). Many observers noted the remarkable rayed pattern of the corona. This rayed structure can even be seen in the earliest representations of the sun disk by Ancient Egyptians at the time of Akhnaten (Amenhotep IV) ca 1340 BC.
