Video of the Week #44 May 24th, 2012:

From: Amazing Video of Solar Eclipse Shows Sun’s Structure by Michael Moyer at Observations.

Photographer Cory Poole captured and compiled timelapse images of the recent annular solar eclipse with a filter that allows light from hydrogen atoms moving from the 2nd excited state to the 1st excited state to be visible, giving us a spectacular view of the Sun’s lower atmosphere and a video that stands out from the others captured this week.
