Absolutely! One of my favorite times between first contact and totality is watching those last angel beams of light escape through the mountains and valleys on the moons surface. Light just barely making the cut off to reach earth.
Diamond Ring Effect / Bailys Beads. The lowest valleys shine the last light of the eclipsed sun’s face, or photosphere.
“God almighty this is a new low for wired.
The moon is 3476 Kilometers wide. In the image above it is 436 pixels wide.
That means 1 Km = 0.1254 pixels.
So a mountain would have to be 8 km high to be one pixel on the screen.
Are there any 8 Km mountains on the moon?”
I wouldn’t worry too hard Josh, Though i love it, Wired is brought to us by the same people that bring us Vouge, GQ & Golf Digest
