Caption: Total solar eclipse. The last rays of the Sun create a diamond ring as the solar prominences and the corona appear during a total solar eclipse. The disc of the Moon has moved over the disc of the Sun. At totality the Moon fits over the Sun and only the Sun's corona (atmosphere) is visible. The moment of totality lasts for only a few minutes. Total solar eclipses usually occur less than once a year and can only be seen from a small area of the Earth's surface. Photographed in August 2008 from Siberia, Russia.
