Near total eclipse
The moon passes in front of the sun at the point of the maximum partial solar eclipse near Banner, Wyoming today (Aug. 21).
This so-called diamond ring effect happened when the moon made its final move over the sun during the total eclipse, as seen from Madras, Oregon.
This effect, known as Bailey's beads, was seen during the total solar eclipse from Madras, Oregon during the Great American Solar Eclipse. The beads were visible because the moon is spotted with mountains and valleys. Light coming from the sun is broken into a band of spots, or beads, as the light appears around the moon's rim.
Bailey's beads usually appear for only a few seconds to about a minute.

NASA Ames tweeted "Astronauts aboard the @Space_Station captured this amazing image of the Moon's shadow over the U.S. during #SolarEclipse2017."
NASA Ames also tweeted" Cool crescent-shaped shadows were seen at @NASAAmes as the Moon took a bite out of the Sun during #SolarEclipse2017"
