The Diamond Ring Effect by Mark Alders

After a horrible accident a year ago, Roy is left to care for his disabled mother. A job he does without thought of reward. Unfortunately, he is also very lonely. Caring for his mother takes up all of his time. What’s more, his father has retreated into his work and no longer has the time to even talk to Roy.

Then one night everything changes. Man’s first contact is made and it’s Roy who has been chosen. But why him? Roy would rather spend his nights dreaming about Hamish then having to accept a request of help from strange beings from another planet.

But that’s just what’s happened. Roy must do something for the aliens, something that will mean confronting his father at his work. What exactly does his Dad do for a living that’s so important to these aliens? As far as Roy is concerned his father is a nobody, just like him.

When the night is through, Roys life will never be the same. But something more important than that, he may get his mother back and his dream man in the process...if only he can talk to his father.

Total Solar Eclipse: Diamond Ring at 3:14 (08-21-2017) ⚫⚫⚫

Today, the Great American Eclipse will be visible to nearly everybody in North America, but those of us lucky enough to be viewing from a narrow path that runs from Salem, Ore. During a total solar eclipse, the moon aligns itself precisely between the sun and Earth. The Diamond Ring Effect occurs in the instant right before the total solar eclipse and in the moment just after. Francis Baily in surmised that the Diamond Ring Effect owed its magic to the rugged surface of the moon. When only one single point of sunlight remains, the burst bears a remarkable resemblance to a diamond, and the halo of the sun still visible behind the moon looks like a ring. That means that the Diamond Ring Effect should be visible starting in Oregon at about a.

This image was acquired during the hybrid solar eclipse of 3 November It shows the double-diamond-ring effect. The effect occurs near the start or end of the total phase, when brilliant sunlight shines through valleys on the Moon's surface while the solar corona is visible. The red glow from the Sun's chromosphere and several prominences are apparent around the edge of the Sun's disc. This eclipse was unusual as it was annular when the Moon is too small to completely cover the Sun on the beginning if the path and then it turned to total as shown here , hence the name hybrid.

Total Solar Eclipse 2017 - Totality - Diamond Ring- Best moments

Today, the Great American Eclipse will be visible to nearly everybody in North America, but those of us lucky enough to be viewing from a narrow path that runs from Salem, Ore. During a total solar eclipse, the moon aligns itself precisely between the sun and Earth. The Diamond Ring Effect occurs in the instant right before the total solar eclipse and in the moment just after. Francis Baily in surmised that the Diamond Ring Effect owed its magic to the rugged surface of the moon. When only one single point of sunlight remains, the burst bears a remarkable resemblance to a diamond, and the halo of the sun still visible behind the moon looks like a ring.

The Baily's beads effect, or diamond ring effect, is a feature of total and annular solar eclipses. As the Moon covers the Sun during a solar eclipse, the rugged topography of the lunar limb allows beads of sunlight to shine through in some places while not in others. The effect is named after Francis Baily , who explained the phenomenon in Lunar topography has considerable relief because of the presence of mountains , craters , valleys , and other topographical features. The irregularities of the lunar limb profile the "edge" of the Moon, as seen from a distance are known accurately from observations of grazing occultations of stars. Astronomers thus have a fairly good idea which mountains and valleys will cause the beads to appear in advance of the eclipse.
