Combined image from SOHO, Solar Dynamics Observatory and La Silla

This image combines a photograph from La Silla in visible light, with ultraviolet data from SOHO's EIT instruments (284 Å) and four filters from Solar Dynamics Observatory's AIA instrument (193 Å, 211 Å, 304 Å and 171 Å).

The combination of these different data all captured close to totality shows the complexity of the solar magnetic field during the eclipse. A large, but not powerful active region can be seen in the middle of the solar disk. The poles of the Sun are relatively dark and with more outflow of ions.
