Cooper was aboard a 12-person Dassault Falcon 900B jet chartered from Bermuda. The flight made a perpendicular crossing of the central shadow track. After only an instant of totality, this snapshot captured the lunar disk in silhouette. Rays of sunlight shining past peaks and valleys along the lunar limb created the fleeting appearance of a glistening diamond ring.
In a detailed blog post, Cooper goes in-depth on how he got this particular shot as well as documenting the whole trip, including more photos of this awesome phenomena.

Submitted earlier this month to reddit by user jareyjareyjareyjarey, the photographer says he randomly placed about 7 or glow sticks on each blade and then took a 30 second exposure.

Master craftsman Henry O. Studley (1838-1925) was an organ and piano maker, carpenter, and mason. He is best known for building this incredible tool chest during his tenure at the Poole Piano Company in Massachusetts, working on it over the course of 30 years.
