Description

This image shows Baily's Beads, which is the bits of beaded light at the 2 o'clock position. It occurs as the moon almost completely obscures the sun during a solar eclipse, except for the "beads" of light that shine through the lunar topography in some places and not others. Notice the solar flares, arching orange and red around the same area of the beads.
