Ring of Fire

Valley of the Gods, Utah | 2023

The October 2023 solar eclipse "Ring of Fire" annular totality over the Valley of the Gods in Bears Ears National Monument. During an annular eclipse the moon is farther away from the Earth so when it passes in front of the Sun, its size in the sky is slightly smaller than the Sun's, leaving a visible circle called the "Ring of Fire".

The sky didn't actually get this dark in real life (unless you looked through solar glasses), but a gradient blend like this was the only way I could combine the extreme exposure range to show the whole scene. That said, I would say that the final image gives a decent expression of how it felt being there, putting the solar glasses on and off. Once the eclipse got going the light did get noticeably dimmer, and the temperature got colder and I had to put my jacket back on.

The annular totality only lasted a few minutes; it was mind bending to see a perfect circle up in the sky, like we were living in a simulation for a moment there. Photo © copyright by Jack Brauer.
