Mare Imbrium

End of Totality’s “Diamond Ring”

The sun’s red chromosphere glows around the edge of the moon. Prominences, exploding jets of solar material, can be seen against the dark sky. As the total eclipse ends, the first brilliant speck of sunlight gives the appearance of a “diamond” while the sun’s dimly-lit inner atmosphere creates a “ring” around the moon.

Eclipse Across the Sky

A total solar eclipse tracks across the sky behind the dome of the Keck Observatory at the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii.

Star Trails Above Observatory

A time lapse photograph shows star trails created by the earth’s rotation, above the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope in Hawaii.
