National Geographic : 1936 Mar
Again in the interests of Science, members of the National Geographic Society undertake new researches SWhile the scientific results of the stratosphere flight are being compiled for members, another expedition is being launched, this Sone occasioned by a total eclipse of the sun due on June 19. Weather surveys in dicate that along the path of the shadow, sched uled to sweep across Asia, clearest visibility may occur at Orenburg, U. S. S. R. To this region will go, in a journey half-way round the world, astronomers and photogra phers sponsored by Georgetown University and the National Geographic Society, and headed by Dr. Paul A. McNally, S.J. The observations and camera studies which will be made for publication in THE GEOGRAPHIC, will continue the work of the 1932 solar eclipse expedition into New England, and will add another chapter to The Society's 48-year record of exploration and scientific research. This remarkable photograph, taken by Dr. Paul A. McNally in 1932, shows the vast extent of coronal light. The corona holds important clues to the mighty forces working within the sun.
