Quotes from the news wire:
Instead of being able to collect data from one spot or for just a few minutes, this eclipse is providing that window of opportunity to observe the corona over a long period of time, this is also an opportunity to test out novel instruments and our models also to see how well are they working. And it's scientifically important because of this sun, moon and Earth connection.
Space telescopes can't take us this close to the sun, the eclipse provides an opportunity for scientists to gather observations very close to the sun in white light, infrared, other wavelengths. This is the region that sets the boundary conditions for how the corona is heated, how is the solar wind accelerated -- conditions we call space weather. We are continuously still learning about this environment.
