Observation of atmospheric scintillation during the 2020 total eclipse in northern Patagonia

During the December 2020 total eclipse we registered time resolved light measurements of incident solar light with VIS-NIR photodiodes in northern Patagonia. Signals compatible with the observation



The shadow band phenomenon

Observations of shadow bands at the total solar eclipse of 16 February 1980.

F Fourier analysis of the noise spectrum of the short term light variations reveals a sharp drop-off for frequencies above 50 Hz and an overall spectrum quite similar to previously reported power spectra of stellar scintillation, consistent with an atmospheric origin for the shadow bands.

Theoretical performance of solar coronagraphs using sharp-edged or apodized circular external occulters

Context. This study focuses on an instrument able to monitor the corona close to the solar limb. Aims. We study the performance of externally occulted solar coronagraphs. We compute the shape of the

Atmospheric scintillation in astronomical photometry

Scintillation noise due to the Earth's turbulent atmosphere can be a dominant noise source in high-precision astronomical photometry when observing bright targets from the ground. Here we describe
