With the coronagiaph you can obsei've the corona continuously anytime you want. 前面讲了 eclipse和corona这里指出coronagraph很关键



the charged paiticles interact with earth’s magnetic field, and they aie poured towaid the south and north poles. Some of them make it to our upper atmosphere where they collide with atoms with oxygen and nitrogen atoms. This collision causes the atoms to light up to glow. Different types of colors glow ui different colors.And this is what is happening when we see an aurora 完整对应了 B 的过程。
