A shin­ing ce­les­tial ring

All About Space - - Launch Pad -

Even though the Great Amer­i­can Eclipse took place in Au­gust 2017, there are still mar­vel­lous images com­ing to promi­nence from the event. ESA’s Co­op­er­a­tion through Ed­u­ca­tion in Sci­ence and As­tron­omy Re­search (CESAR) ed­u­ca­tional ini­tia­tive took this snapshot, which causes the spec­ta­cle to re­sem­ble an enor­mous di­a­mond ring.

As the eclipse ap­proached to­tal­ity, which is when the Moon com­pletely blocks out the Sun’s light, the last glim­mer of sun­light breaks through, al­low­ing one to draw com­par­isons to the shim­mer­ing of a glit­ter­ing di­a­mond.
