Solar Corona + Keck & Subaru

Here is an event older than the recent (May 20, 2012) Annular solar eclipse. This shot is from near the summit of Mauna Kea using a low quality digital camera (the best available at the time).

 

The last eclipse visible from Mexico and Hawaii was in 1991.

 

Yes, those are clouds below the observatories.

 

And THIS IMAGE is a FORGERY, just like many of the "AnnularSolar Eclipse 2012" photos. Read about it and detecting other forgeries here
