Both stabilized telescopes aboard the WB-57F aircraft successfully acquired science data and images during the August 21 eclipse, including observations of the solar corona during eclipse totality and of Mercury during the eclipse partial phase. Initial analysis of the data has begun, with results expected to be available over the coming months.
