Do you know where you will not get the corona virus? Space, that's the place. you will See the beautiful halo around the sun and other celestial bodies. The word "corona" has Latin origin and is essentially "crown". The corona is the outermost region of the Sun's atmosphere. It is a hazy halo of colder plasma that is released from the surface of the star. This is most evident during the total solar eclipse, which is one of the reasons why solar physicists [solar scientists] are so excited about these rare events. This week, we will pull around the solar system to find the corona without washing our hands.

The sun's corona is made of solar plasma, is not visible most of the time. But when the sun is blocked by the moon, we get a complete light show that reveals the changing shape of the sun's atmosphere.Photo: Carla Thomas / NASA

This photo taken by the SOHO spacecraft in 2017 essentially shows an artificial eclipse as a way to study the corona: a blue disc is blocking the sun, indicated by a white circle. The huge flare on the right is called CME, the corona mass ejection. These jets occur when highly charged particles are ejected from openings in the solar magnetic field, and highly charged particles are responsible for the aurora on Earth. In the upper left corner, you can see Venus moving in the image. is in the lower left.Photo: NASA Goddard
When the corona appears around the moon, it is because of special conditions in our own atmosphere that affect the way we see light reflected from the moon.Photo: Jamie Cooper / SSPL / Getty Images
Venus was once covered by active volcanoes, and fiery history has left its mark. This circular feature [also known as corona] was created by ancient lava flows. The entire area is called Artemis Chasma and spans over 2,000 miles.Photo: NASA / JPL
In 1991, NASA's Magellan spacecraft captured cracks and coronas on the surface of Venus. You will see some younger impact craters and cracks from plate tectonics. The main circular feature is the corona from past volcanic activity.Photo: NASA / JPL
