Beautiful 2017 Eclipse Corona

I wanted to share this image I took of the total solar eclipse just south of Casper, WY on August 21, 2017. What is unique about the image is the delicate texture in the sun’s corona, especially the tendrils emanating from top (from either side of a prominence) and the apparent twisting of the corona at about the 7 o’clock position.
