"2017 Total Solar Eclipse "Diamond Ring"

Shot with 5" f/7.5 ED triplet refractor telescope w/.7 focal reducer/field flattener

photo by Bill and Sally Fletcher, taken from Weiser, Idaho

- The 2017 Total Solar Eclipse was viewed all across the United States as the shadow of the moon raced across the surface of the earth, from Oregon to So. Carolina. The sun's beautiful corona was revealed when the moon completely obscured the sun's direct light allowing it's atmosphere to be seen.

This photo was taken just as totality was beginning and a burst of sunlight was still escaping around the edge of the moon. This effect is known as the "Diamond Ring" effect and occurs during most total solar eclipses.
