“During a total eclipse, one of the most mesmerizing sights is the sun's ghostly corona. Gossamer streamers of gas in the sun's outer atmosphere suddenly become visible when the disk of the Moon blocks the glaring body of the sun. NASA-supported researchers at Predictive Science Inc. have just issued a computer model showing how the corona should look to the human eye on Aug.21st, the date of the Great American Solar Eclipse:”

For Projected images:

And from NASA: ... 20170811-7

And this one is really good for seeing the path of the eclipse: ... 0799681874 (You have to wait several seconds for the actual video to load).

(Astrologers may like to note that this Solar Eclipse falls at 28Leo53, exactly on Donald Trump's Ascendant at 29Leo58).
