I'm Speechless

Oh. My. Gawd.  That eclipse was AMAZING. I can't really put into words how magical this experience was!! I now have over 700 images to cull through, but I have to go to work today. I squeezed out a couple very quick and rough edits just to show my captures. My biggest goal was Baileys Beads, AND I GOT IT! ...and then some!  There is a whole story about my adventure coming shortly, with all the imagery, but for now, these two lonely images will have to do. I was using a new solar filter, one without orange hues to it.

May I present, Bailey's Beads and the Diamond RIngs!  Click on the photo to see a larger version.

Stay tuned for more...

Update: You can now find the full story with all images here: My Epic Eclipse Adventure

Baileys Beads 2024 Total Solar EclipseBaileys Beads 2024 Total Solar EclipseThis is a phenomenon that occurs as the Moon almost entirely covers the Sun, only allowing the sun to shine through the very edge of the craters of the Moon. Light is entirely blocked except for what spills through those craters on the edge, creating a prismatic string of beads effect. Diamonds 2024 Total Solar EclipseDiamonds 2024 Total Solar EclipseThis phenomenon occurs when the Moon passes just far enough beyond the Sun to allow for light to begin pouring back into view. The very edge of that light reveals itself as a bright prismatic "diamond" set on a less bright ring of the silhouetted Moon. It presents as a solitaire diamond ring, or a pair in this case.
