I was having a holiday trip in the Seitseminen National Park, Finland. We spent a night with Linda in an old, log-cabin by a lake Pitkäjärvi in the National Park. On 22nd of July 2012, I observed a solar corona. The corona was just like an everyday-corona, but this time I was able to observe the corona from a reflection from a still surface of a lake. Observing solar coronas from a reflection of a still body of water is much easier and safer way to observe them!
