Some historic fragments of eclipse investigations of polar coronal plumes
are presented. New data of fundamental significance have been obtained recently
thanks to the SOHO space observatory. Detection of polar plumes penetrating
through the whole space of polar coronal holes is one of the most important
results of the SOHO mission. It is suggested that any coronal hole
independently of its location on the Sun should have structural elements like
to polar plumes. The forthcoming solar eclipse of August 11, 1999 may give a
favourable opportunity to detailed study of such features.
