December 14, eclipse time!

On Monday December 14, a total solar eclipse, the last eclipse of 2020, was visible from parts of Chile and Argentina. Weather permitting, some locations in South America, south-west Africa, and Antarctica saw the partial phase of this eclipse, as did the instruments onboard PROBA2.

Long-term evolution of the solar corona using PROBA2 data

We studied the evolution of the solar corona observed throughout solar cycle 24 (from 2010 to 2019), by using PROBA2/SWAP images, PROBA2/LYRA irradiance time series, and the latest version of the International Sunspot Number (ISN) dataset.
