Picture of the Day: Diamond in the Sky

DIAMOND IN THE SKY

dark sun over queenland before eclipse november 2012

On November 14, 2012, a total solar eclipse was experienced on Ellis beach between Cairns and Port Douglas in Queensland, Australia. Right before the eclipse, photographer Alex Cherney took this beautiful capture of the last direct rays of sunlight which produced a diamond ring effect.

The total solar eclipse plunged the area into darkness for nearly two minutes. You can see a timelapse video of the amazing event (also filmed by Cherney) embedded below.

Prints of this shot are available on RedBubble. For more astronomical photography from Alex, be sure to check out his site Terrastro.com
