A total solar eclipse is such an amazing event it has had an impact on the human psyche since the dawn of written history . . . some 5000 years ago!

Help your students study an eclipse of the sun with these fine-art classroom posters that includes:

Baily’s Beads – As the moon “grazes” by the Sun during a solar eclipse, the rugged lunar limb topography (the mountains) allows beads of sunlight to shine through in some places, and not in others.

The Diamond Ring – The effect seen in the few seconds just before and after totality of a total solar eclipse when there is a single point of sunlight brilliantly shining through a valley on the limb of the moon.

The Chromosphere (The Ring of Fire) – The lower atmosphere of the sun just above the photosphere that appears as a thin crimson ring around the edge of the sun during a total solar eclipse.

The Corona (Outer Atmosphere) – The upper atmosphere of the sun. It appears as a halo around the sun during a total solar eclipse.
