Here is a cool picture taken of a solar eclipse from antarctica. I believe the title of the picture is called "Ice and Fire".

That is the picture they put on cnn.com - not sure why it looks fake. Maybe that is how it really looks from antarctica. The quality of the picture doesn't seem to great though.

It's not a real photo, it's a composite.. According to their website, the description for this image says..

Quote:
The framed image below is a highly processed composite of four images that's intended to be a more artistic representation of what the eclipse felt like. I have increased the color saturation slightly to better show the green thru red corona colors, otherwise the image is truthful.


But, there are many other real photos on the site.
