A diamond ring is forever

The memory of the sight of the Diamond Ring effect, we mean.

The actual moment that Baily’s beads appear during a total eclipse lasts for just a few seconds, either before the Moon completely blocks out the Sun during totality, or just when the Sun emerges from behind the Moon, causing the scintillating Diamond Ring effect to appear.

Enjoy these pictures taken from different total solar eclipses in recent years. Diamond Ring effects are a solar eclipse buff and photography enthusiast’s best friend.

    Wow! This is even more precious than the real diamond, you can’t buy it with money. If my boyfriend propose to me when the eclipse happens, that will be so romantic. I WILL marry him!

    Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Kudos!
