Contemplating our spectacular Sun

The spectacular menagerie of silhouettes was taken in 2012 from the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area near Page, Arizona, USA, where park rangers and astronomers expounded on the unusual event to interested gatherers.

Also faintly visible on the Sun’s disk, just to the lower right of the dark Moon’s disk, is a group of sunspots.
