1860 During the eclipses of 1851 and 1860 it was proved through close observations that the phenomena seen around the moon (prominences and the corona) belonged to the sun and not the moon. Using a small telescope one can see the moon moving slowly in front of (or revealing) prominences and bright coronal features during the course of totality. Image from The Sun by C.A. Young, Appleton and Co. 1895.
