Jupiter’s corona

Jupiter’s corona

Not only the Moon or Sun can be source of atmospheric optical phenomenon called corona. Here is wonderful case of appearance of the corona around bright planet Jupiter. While thin clouds were slowly moving in front of it, the moonlit of young Moon illuminated the foreground of northern Atacama desert, Chile, with numerous volcanoes over the horizon. Red and green colors in the sky are caused by atmospheric airlow and you can also recognize known Leo (Lion) constellation, orientated upside-down in the southern hemisphere. The shot was taken on 11th April, 2016, using Canon 6D Baader IR modified, Samyang 24 mm, f2.8, ISO 6400, 3x15s panorama from tripod.
