In this 1/15 second exposure the intense inner corona washes out the prominences except for just a hint at the 3 and 10 o'clock positions where the characteristic red hydrogen alpha prominence colour bleeds onto the black disc of the Moon. The bases of coronal streamers are evident around the disc; look at that beautiful double streamer just below the 9 o'clock position.
