Photographer: Len DiPinto

This is an 12 x 12″ picture on aluminum with a float mount (shown in picture) for easy wall hanging.

On Monday August 21st 2017 a total eclipse of the Sun occurred within a 65-mile-wide stretch of land starting in Oregon then crossing the whole contiguous United States and exiting over the Atlantic in South Carolina. The last time a total solar eclipse crossed the whole width of the contiguous United States occurred June 8th 1918. A group of Aldrich Astrophotographers traveled to Driggs, Idaho with a goal of seeing and photographing the total eclipse of the Sun under clear skies. Thankfully this dream was realized and this amazing photograph was created when the Sun was partially shown during a phase of the eclipse known as the “Diamond Ring”.
