Abstract : The coronal structure to be expected during the solar eclipse of 22 September 1968 has recently been published. Prof. M. Waldmeier has made available a sketch that he prepared from photographs obtained during this eclipse. Many of the features seen in the eclipse (streamers, open-rayed configurations, and condensations) were in good qualitative agreement with those predicted from the model. Comparisons of the exact shape of many features may lead to improvements in the model and to a better understanding of coronal processes.
