Observations of the solar corona carried out during the March 9, 1997 total
solar eclipse are described, and the goals of experiments are mentioned. The
photometry of the white-light images shows the form of the solar corona typical
for the near-minimum phase of solar cycles, i.e. considerably flattened towards
the solar equator and abundant in polar coronal rays. We managed to add current
observations of the emission corona and prominences, made with the coronagraph
of the Lomnicky Stit Observatory to the eclipse data. Profiles of the "green"
and "red" emission corona brightness at a standard height of 40 sec of arc
above the Sun's limb are presented here, while full analysis of a the large
number of extra-eclipse measurements will take more time.
