THE BAILYS BEADS Taken by Petr Horálek/ESO on July 2, 2019 @ La Silla Observatory, Chile

THE BAILYS BEADS: While total solar eclipse progresses, many amazing phenomena occurs around. Solar corona appears, lunar shadow shows up in the sky, creates colorful show, bright stars and planets are visible... Most dynamic moments are, however, during beginning and end of the eclipse, when solar photosphere radiates over the mountainous edge of the Moon. Short moments around the totality gives opportunity to see these small shining regions like a pearls or so-called Bailys beads, named after Francis Baily (1774-1844)--born 245 years ago. The visibility of the beads over La Silla Observatory was unusually long due to position of the spot close to the edge of the path of totality. Everybody will remember that... Used Canon 6D, MTO 1100/f10.5.
