This image of the solar corona is a High Dynamic Range composite made from 22 separate exposures. The original images were shot by Espenak in Jalu, Libya during the total solar eclipse of March 29, 2016. The USPS used this image to create the Total Eclipse of the Sun, Forever® stamp.

  1. I’m so pleased to see your efforts over the years rewarded with the upcoming publication of the US eclipse stamp. I suspect you would have been more pleased if a larger and better aspect ratio had been chosen, but I realize compromise is the name of the game….

  2. Fabulous image. I would love to see it, without any type at all, on the front of a black T-shirt. I don’t suppose anyone’s doing or has done this? Would love to wear one when I go up to Idaho to view it this summer.
