2017 Solar Eclipse (XL)
Total Solar Eclipse ~ Ref. #14 0306
August 21st, 2017
This photograph was taken from Central Oregon within the zone of totality August 21st, 2017. The diamond ring effect is seen only for a few seconds as the eclipse enters and leaves totality. In this photograph the eclipse is leaving totality. The irregularities of the "edge" of the Moon (i.e. mountains and valleys) cause “Baily’s beads”, These are difficult to distinguish in this photograph as the sun’s corona at this point is already too bright. A thin reddish edge, called the chromosphere (named from the Greek chromos), appears. The reddish hydrogen radiation and solar flares are still visible.
Nikon D800E Camera, 36mp Digital Image (Eclipse filter removed during totality)
Nikon 200-500 VR ED lens (at 500mm) with 1.4 extender = 770mm lens
