Caption: Total solar eclipse. Solar eclipses occur when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. The solar corona (yellow) is seen during eclipses. This is the outer layer of the Sun, comprising rarefied gases at extremely high temperatures. The corona is usually hidden by the glare from the surface of the Sun. Venus can be seen to the upper left of the eclipsed sun. Photographed in the Altai Mountains, Siberia, Russia, in August 2008.
