The Making of the Film, SOLAR CORONA

Unknown author (1973-02-01)

The film SOLAR CORONA was made from data taken from August 14, 1969 through May 7, 1970, by OSO-VI, one of the Orbiting Satellite Observatories. One of the experiments on board scanned across and up and down the image of the sun, as we read a printed page. Each line of the scan was broken up into several distinct measurement points, similar to our eyes fixating as we read a line of text.
