Title: Sun's image in the extreme ultraviolet radiation emitted from the corona
Description:
The Skylab space station's Extreme Ultraviolet monitor is a closed loop 
television system that permitted man for the first time to watch the Sun's 
image in the extreme ultraviolet radiation emitted from its million-degree 
outer atmosphere, the corona. This photograph shows a view of the TV scope 
made by Scientist-Astronaut Owen K. Garriott, Skylab 3 science pilot, on 
August 15, 1973. Dr. Garriott made this picture with a Land-Polaroid SX-70 
camera - the first time that any Polaroid camera has been used in space.
