I tried to capture polarisation in the corona during the TSE. Basically I ran two back to back sequences with a 90° rotation of my polariser in the middle. The rest was trying to make it look halfway natural. Cyan maps to north-south while red maps to east-west.

I used the same data to generate a white light version too...

I hope you enjoy - higher res versions in my gallery.

Thank you, sir. (?) 

Google says there are only 5 towns in NE I missed on the expedition. Chances are I drove through your back yard en route to Lost Springs (Population 4).
