The image here almost looks like a painting, but it is indeed a photograph. This is a stunning corona of the total solar eclipse of November 13, 2012, as observed from Queensland, Australia. The corona is the outermost region of the sun's atmosphere. The corona can only be observed when the moon passes exactly in front of the solar disk.
