REDDING, Calif. - Cory Pool rigged a camera to a telescope with a special filter to create a timelapse video of the May 20 annular solar eclipse.

"The filter on the telescope allows you to see the chromosphere which is a layer that contains solar prominences," said Pool, 33, who teaches math and science in Redding. "The filter only allows light that is created when hydrogen atoms go from the 2nd excited state to the 1st excited state."

Pool made the 60 second timelapse video made from 700 individual frames shot through a Coronado Solar Max 60 Double Stacked Hydrogen Alpha Solar Telescope. He has more images on his website, CoryPool.com.
