Diamond ring effect. View of the 'diamond ring' seen toward the end of a total solar eclipse. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon completely blocks the Sun's disc. The diamond ring is seen as the Moon just begins to reveal the Sun's bright surface (photosphere) at the end of totality. There are a minimum of two solar eclipses per year visible from Earth. This eclipse was photographed from Bolivia on 3 November 1994.
