1919 solar eclipse

1919 solar eclipse. Image 2 of 3. This set of images, taken by the British astronomer Arthur Eddington (1882-1944), confirmed Einsteins theory of general relativity. The stars near the Sun appear slightly shifted because their light is curved by its gravitational field. This shift is only noticeable during a solar eclipse as at other times the Suns brightness obscures the stars. This is a total solar eclipse, when the moon fits over the Sun so only its corona (atmosphere) is visible. Image taken form Principe Island, Gulf of Guinea, on 29 May 1919. For a sequence of the eclipse see R506/416-R506/418

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the historic 1919 solar eclipse, a pivotal moment in scientific history. British astronomer Arthur Eddington's meticulous work confirmed Einstein's groundbreaking theory of general relativity. In this image, the stars surrounding the Sun appear subtly shifted due to their light being curved by the immense gravitational field of our star. This phenomenon is only observable during a solar eclipse when the Sun's brilliance doesn't overpower these minute shifts. The photograph showcases a total solar eclipse, where the Moon perfectly aligns with and obscures most of the Sun, revealing only its ethereal corona or atmosphere. Taken on May 29th, 1919 from Principe Island in the Gulf of Guinea, this snapshot encapsulates an extraordinary celestial event that forever changed our understanding of space and time. Intriguingly monochrome yet rich with historical significance, this image symbolizes humanity's relentless pursuit of knowledge about our universe. It represents a milestone in astrophysics and cosmology while reminding us of how far we have come in unraveling nature's mysteries. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece from Science Photo Library, we are transported back to that fateful day when science triumphed over conventionality. The shifting stars against a darkened sky serve as a testament to human curiosity and ingenuity—an enduring reminder that even amidst darkness, there is always light waiting to be discovered through exploration and scientific inquiry.
