I started life as a very old man. I guess you can call it “aging backwards.” A year passes, yet I only get younger, more powerful, healthier, wealthier, more intelligent and creative.
The Diamond Ring Effect
The Baily’s beads effect is a feature of total solar eclipses.
As the moon “grazes” by the Sun during a solar eclipse, the rugged lunar limb topography allows beads of sunlight to shine through in some places, and not in others. The name is in honor of Francis Baily who first provided an exact explanation of the phenomenon in 1836. The diamond ring effect is seen when only one bead is left; a shining diamond set in a bright ring around the lunar silhouette.
