Indications of Short Periodicity in the FeXIV 503.3nm Emission Line at the 2008 Solar Eclipse

  • Donald H. LiebenbergAffiliated withDepartment of Physics and Astronomy, Clemson University Email author 


Observations at the 1 August 2008 total solar eclipse in western China were obtained through a narrow band interference filter centered on the 530.3 nm FeXIV emission line at a cadence of 30 frames/second. A simplified analysis indicates that in a position near the base of a coronal streamer a short period intensity periodicity is found. The analysis and results are presented.
