Only in the fleeting darkness of a total solar eclipse is the light of the solar corona easily visible. #BOSPlanet
Normally overwhelmed by the bright solar disk, the expansive corona, the sun's outer atmosphere, is an alluring sight. But the subtle details and extreme ranges in the corona's brightness, although discernible to the eye, are notoriously difficult to photograph. Pictured here is a detailed image of the Sun's corona taken during the 2008 August total solar eclipse from Mongolia. Clearly visible are intricate layers and glowing caustics of an ever changing mixture of hot gas andmagnetic fields. Bright looping prominences appear pink just above the Sun's limb.

Day 6 of #BackBendingYoginis 💞 I started my moon so asana was out of the cards for me. During my cycle I stick to meditation! .
When I contemplate backbending its all about perspective.. soo.. Here is one of my favorite quotes about perspective by @sharonsalzberg 🌈💫 "It is never too late to turn on the light. Your ability to break an unhealthy habit or turn off an old tape doesn't depend on how long it has been running; a shift in perspective doesn't depend on how long you've held on to the old view.
When you flip the switch in that attic, it doesn't matter whether its been dark for ten minutes, ten years or ten decades.
The light still illuminates the room and banishes the murkiness, letting you see the things you couldn't see before.
Its never too late to take a moment to look." #yogaeverydamnday#limbsofyoga#yogaoffthemat#fullcircle#backbends#perspective ...
