Abstract

A balloon observation of the F-corona in visual and infrared regions was carried out by Japanese and Indonesian teams at the total solar eclipse on June 11, 1983, in Java, Indonesia. For the visual observation, a SIT television camera, with 4 interference filters (5300Å, 6000Å, 7200Å and 8000Å) and a 45°-step rotating polarizer, was used. The camera measured brightness distributions in a sky area of 5°×5° centered at the eclipsed sun at each polarizer position for each filter. In this paper, a part of results, which are the brightness and polarization distributions in a half area of the 6000Å picture, is shown.
