One unique feature of a total solar eclipse is only visible for a very short time period (seconds) and is termed the diamond ring effect. The earliest recorded observations of this phenomenon are from 1715. As the moon begins to cover the sun, you see a crescent sun. Just before totality, the opposing horns of the crescent sun begin to converge while the solar atmosphere becomes visible shining around the edge of the moon where the sun has already been covered. After totality, this happens again and the second ring is reportedly more brilliant (probably because our eyes have adjusted to the darkness).
To find this cache you will need a bright flashlight (not your phone light). Go to the posted coordinates (not the final cache location) and find a silver disc [with a four digit number, ABCD] nailed to a pole.
Divide the first two numbers by 2 (AB/2) and add to the seconds of the West coordinates. Add the second two numbers (CD) to the seconds of the North coordinates. These are the coordinates for the trailhead.
At the trailhead, shine the flashlight around until you see a reflection and follow this "light path" to the cache. The type of "lights" may change as you go along the path. In general, double tacks signify a turn. Be careful of your footing, especially as the path nears the creek. Permission for this cache was obtained from the Town of Lexington.
