Artist Kelly Jean Aceves captures the very rare and phenomenal moment in which the moon is about to move out of its perfect alignment with both the sun and earth, known as the diamond ring effect in a total solar eclipse. Kelly has created a most stunning composition in which the viewer is transcended into an ethereal moment now lost in time. This photograph was published in Astronomy Magazine's December 2017 edition documenting this historical eclipse. Not only does this image showcase The 2017 Great American Eclipse, but it also forms a marvelous masterpiece.
