Default Corona around the Sun

No - not the very hot one! Noticed this while I was waiting for the
clouds to clear today...

That's a nicely exposed shot.

You seem to be having a rather nice run of decent photo opportunities at the
moment Pete - keep it going!

For months I've been looking forward to getting some nice Venus crescents
but the clouds are having this annoying habit of lounging around all
afternoon and then buggering off after Venus has layed to rest her oh so
weary head.

I don't know...if I don't get an evening shot soon I'll have to get up early
in about a weeks time to catch an early morning crescent. Apparantly there
might be a slight one around the 8th so I'm hedging my bets and going for
the 7th and 9th. It's so cunning it's got to work!

Keep clicking,
Ed.

Lovely shot, but this is not the corona.

I'll just use one of my evening shots and turn it upside down ;-)

You mean turn the photograph upside down so the backing paper faces upwards?
I reckon it'll be an exact match!
Regards,
Ed.

Beautiful Pete - I've never seen anything quite like that, let alone
photographed it - I can only imagine that you spend at least 50% of your
time ready with a Camera to get some of the shots you do :-)

Regards,

Andrew

A bit confusing as they share the same name but it is a corona

Thank you Pete. I was never aware that this term was used to describe 2 very
different things. I shall have to look at this more closely.

You also get a corona around high voltage, plus the word is used in
several other fields too. Corona is Latin for crown I believe.

Indeed. In Mexico it comes in a bottle.

Best,
