Taken during the last half of totality, this is a composite of 6 bracketed exposures, all to capture the different layers of the corona around the Sun. Those pink things shooting out from the Sun are called Prominences, and these are only visible in the Hydrogen Alpha spectrum, unless the Moon blocks out the Sun. That prominence on the bottom right was so big and bright, it was visible to the naked eye as a sparkle of light against of black disc. The bracket exposures include: 1/500 sec, 1/250 sec, 1/125, 1/30 sec, 1/8 sec, 1/2 sec, all at ISO 320 and F/6
