This 1/1000 second exposure was taken an instant after the second contact (the start of totality). The Moon is moving from lower left to upper right across the face of the Sun; the initial diamond ring at the 1 o'clock position is just disappearing. Prominences are visible at the 3 and 10 o'clock positions and all around the large active region at the upper right.
