Reconstruction of the famous "Einstein's" solar eclipse photograph, picture was also awarded by NASA

On Monday, April 5, 2021, the Universities Space Research Association NASA published a photo entitled "Colored Einstein Eclipse" as a prestigious Earth Science Picture of the Day, co-authored by Petr Horálek from the Institute of Physics in Opava and prof. Miloslav Druckmüller from the Brno University of Technology. Using modern computational methods of image processing, they tried to "revive" the image of the solar eclipse from May 29, 1919, which led to the confirmation of Einstein's general theory of relativity. Thus, after more than 100 years, people can see for the first time what this phenomenon looked like in colors and what unusual phenomena surrounded the obscured Sun.

A photo from the Institute of Physics was published in NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day

On the first day of 2021, the NASA institute published the photo "Galaxies and the South Celestial Pole" by Petr Horálek and Josef Kujal in the prestigious APOD collection. The photo was taken during the 14th of December Full Solar Eclipse Expedition, backed by the Institute of Physics in Opava and the international project Solar Wind Sherpas of the University of Hawaii. The photo shows a deep field in the vicinity of the south celestial pole dominated by three galaxies – a part of our own Milky Way and two satellite galaxies known as Magellanic Clouds.
