NASA releases stunning Ring of Fire eclipse photo of the Moon

As the Moon drifted further in front of the Sun, left to right, only the higher peaks on the Moon’s perimeter could block sunlight.

NASA wrote in an accompanying statement: “Therefore, the dark streaks are projected, distorted, reversed, and magnified shadows of mountains at the Moon’s edge.

“Bright areas are called Bailey’s Beads.”

This eclipse coincided with the summer solstice – the northern hemisphere’s longest day of the year.
